What are the consequences of a criminal conviction?
A criminal conviction may result in a fine or incarceration, but the consequences do not end there. A criminal conviction can haunt you for life by interfering with your ability to find a job, causing the loss of your driver’s license, and rendering you ineligible to register to vote or to keep or bear a firearm. Convictions for certain crimes can significantly impair your parental rights in Oklahoma. For example, a parent is legally presumed to be unfit if the parent: has ever had to register as a sex offender; has been convicted of domestic abuse within the past 5 years; or if the parent lives with someone who has had to register as a sex offender or has been convicted of domestic abuse within the past 5 years. Convictions related to alcohol or drug abuse or other crimes, including for stalking or harassment, may also be factors in determining that a parent is unfit to have custody of a minor child in Oklahoma.
