Oklahoma woman charged with 4th DUI

Oklahoma police say that a 23-year-old woman has been charged with driving under the influence for the fourth time in less than a year. The Broken Arrow resident was charged with her first DUI in April 2013. The latest drunk driving offense followed a two-vehicle accident on April 21 in Tulsa. The woman is said to have driven into the back of another car on South Riverside Drive at about 1:30 p.m.

Police state that they smelled alcohol on the woman when they arrived at the accident scene. Officers added that the woman appeared to be unsteady when she was asked to exit her vehicle. A subsequent toxicology test is said to have recorded the woman's blood alcohol level at .32 percent.

The woman's first drunk driving charge came almost a year prior. She was charged with DUI in April 2013 after being pulled over for speeding on Creek Turnpike by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. The second drunk driving violation came in January 2014 after police say that she attempted to flee an accident scene. Her third DUI came after a Broken Arrow police officer stopped her vehicle for a lane change violation in March.

Oklahoma drivers charged with DUI may face a felony count if they have been convicted of drunk driving within the last 10 years. In addition to carrying potentially more severe penalties, a felony conviction can impact an individual's ability to find a job or enroll in school. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help those in this situation by seeking to have felony charges reduced during plea discussions. Prosecutors work with limited resources, and they may be receptive to a plea agreement in felony DUI cases where evidence is often subject to greater scrutiny.
