Suspended Sentences for Assault and Battery in Oklahoma
A suspended sentence means the court has decided to suspend all or part of a jail sentence in favor of probation. If you receive a suspended sentence and successfully complete your supervised or unsupervised probation, you can avoid being behind bars. If you violate the terms of your probation, the judge can either impose additional restrictions or withdraw the suspended sentence and require you to serve out the remainder of the sentence in jail.
