Ask Your Own Criminal Law Question
HelloCustomer

Thank you for choosing Just Answer! In order to better answer your question, it would be helpful to know a few more facts.

1 - Where are the felons located?

2 - What were they convicted of?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago.
Oklahoma drug conviction/ sex offence
HelloCustomer

The Oklahoma Marriage Act does not list any felony convictions as a bar to marriage. Therefore, two felons may legally marry in Oklahoma, assuming that they are otherwise eligible (not married, of legal age, and not too closely related).

more Specific can 2 felons on probation still, be assiocated with each other
HelloCustomer

If either felon has, as part of their probation order, a provision that forbids contact with another felon while on probation, then dating a felon or marrying a felon would violate the terms of the probation. That could lead to a revocation of probation and resentencing to prison.

Therefore, the safest course of action would be to avoid contact with each other until the probation period is completed.

Alternatively, the felons could petition the court for a modification of their probation orders, allowing them to have contact and to marry.
