Predicate Misdemeanors in Oklahoma Criminal Law
Not all misdemeanors are the same. Some misdemeanor offenses will always remain misdemeanors no matter how many times someone is convicted of them. Other misdemeanors are misdemeanor offenses the first time someone is convicted of them and become felonies upon the second conviction. When entering a plea to "predicate" misdemeanor a defendant is required to complete the longer "Plea of Guilty Summary of Facts Form".
Some of the more common predicate misdemeanors are possession of marijuana, domestic assault and battery and DUI.
