ADA COUNTY DUI LAWS AND PENALTIES
Idaho DUI laws and procedures are complex and filled with red tape. You need someone who can guide you through the system and defend your rights.
While many people think that a first time DUI is "not that big of a deal" this could not be further from the truth. Do not try to handle these cases on your own. A conviction can result in severe and lasting consequences.
In Idaho if you are charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) for a second time within 10 years, you are facing enhanced penalties. Although still considered a misdemeanor offense, a second DUI conviction comes with mandatory jail time, a spike in fines, and many other possible penalties.
In Idaho a third or subsequent DUI conviction is a felony DUI and can result in a prison sentence.
An excessive DUI is charged when an individual's BAC is above a .20. This is a more serious offense than a "standard DUI" and can result in enhanced penalties. A conviction for your first excessive DUI in Idaho is a misdemeanor but a second conviction within may result in a felony charge.
An Aggravated DUI is a felony DUI typically involving a crash where someone was severely hurt or killed.
When under the age of 21 years old, it is illegal to operate a vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) over .02 in Idaho. The penalties for minors who break this law can be as serious and long-lasting as those for adults convicted of Driving Under the Influence.
