Assault and Battery

Assault and battery charges can vary widely in Oklahoma, depending on whether you allegedly used a weapon, whether the incident is considered domestic abuse and various other factors.

Domestic Violence

In Oklahoma, domestic violence is an assault, battery, or both against a current or former spouse, family member, romantic partner, roommate, or co-parent. A first offense with no aggravating factors is usually a misdemeanor. However, if there is a pattern of abuse, a child was present, the alleged victim was pregnant, or the alleged victim suffered great bodily harm, the charge and associated penalties can become much more serious.
