Extortion involves obtaining money or property without consent by use of force or fear or induced by threats of harm. Attempts are punished by up to 2 years and completed crimes punishable by up to 5 years under Oklahoma law.
Blackmail is similar to extortion but involves some form of verbal or written communication with the intent to extort or gain any thing of value or to compel another to do an act against his will. Examples would include threatening to expose private information that would disgrace the victim or subject the victim to ridicule or contempt of society, threatening to accuse the victim of a crime or threatening to report the victim as being illegally present in the U.S. All are forms of blackmail. The punishment range is zero to 5 years if convicted.
