- Oklahoma County District Judges and District Attorneys are authorized to consider Community Sentencing as an alternative to incarceration for offenders convicted of a felony, with a prior conviction of a felony, including some crimes of violence.
- Offenders must have been convicted or entered a plea other than guilty.
- Offenders must complete a level of services inventory (LSI) assessment and receive a moderate score of 19 to 28 or higher.
