Arrest Laws

Oklahoma Arrest Laws

OK peace officers can arrest someone with a valid, signed Oklahoma warrant. They can also arrest someone when an offense is committed in their presence. If someone commits a felony while not in the officer's presence, the peace officer may arrest them. If an officer has reasonable cause to believe someone has committed a felony or misdemeanor, they can arrest them at that time too. If an officer thinks someone was driving a car that was involved in an accident and they left the scene, the officer can arrest them.

Who has a Power of Arrest in OK?

Any authorized peace officer and private citizen may arrest someone in OK. According to the law 21 OK Stat § 21-99 (2014), “The term "peace officer" means any sheriff, police officer, federal law enforcement officer, tribal law enforcement officer, or any other law enforcement officer whose duty it is to enforce and preserve the public peace.” Peace officers also include national park service rangers.

How Long Will an Arrest Report Stay on your Oklahoma State Records?

Arrest records will stay on someone’s criminal report for life if they do not apply to have them removed. If they committed a violent felony, it could not be removed, but they can ask the governor for a pardon. Non-violent felonies and misdemeanors are eligible, but offenders must follow some guidelines first. It may take a few weeks for the process, and they will have to pay between $150-$175 when applying. They will have to wait 2-5 years after completing sentencing before they can proceed with an expungement.

Can you Expunge your Records?

Yes, but not all crimes are eligible. Violent felonies will stay on a person’s record forever. If they do qualify by having an arrest that was never charged or convicted, it will be easier than if they have multiple convictions. Misdemeanors are easier to have removed than felonies. In some cases, all thet can do is wait and then apply for a pardon from the governor.
