Idaho DUI - Third Offense

In Idaho a third DUI conviction is a felony. Felony offenses create more complications than misdemeanors, including stiffer penalties and lifelong problems gaining employment (many employers have policies against hiring felons), obtaining insurance, and exercising some civil liberties.

When you are facing a third DUI offense, it is critical to see an attorney who is experienced in DUI law to help you get the best possible outcome.

A Third DUI Conviction Will Result In Harsh Penalties

Prison Sentence Because it's a felony charge, a third DUI conviction can result in a prison sentence. Even if the court chooses not to throw you in prison, it is almost guaranteed that the sentence will include an extensive county jail term. The minimum sentence for third-time DUI offenders is 30 days in jail. But, the court reserves the right to impose up to a five-year prison sentence.

License Suspension Your driver's license will be suspended for a mandatory minimum of one-year, but depending on the case, suspensions can last up to five years.

Fines The maximum fine for a third DUI conviction is $5,000.
