Question: Why does a person face two separate cases when he is arrested for DUI in Oklahoma?
Answer: The first and the most obvious is that the person faces a criminal charge of DUI. That will go through either the municipal or the state courts. That’s the part that a person faces jail time on. The second case is a distinct issue that happens in a completely different place, different time, different people making the decision and different issues are involved. That’s the driver’s license case and that’s an administrative case. And as I said, different rules and they’re just in different places. But by being stopped and being given an affidavit that kicks in automatically the issue involving the driver’s license.
