Idaho Felony DUI

In Idaho a DUI can be classified as a felony in several circumstances:

  • A third DUI conviction within 10 years.  
  • A DUI conviction within 15 years of a previous Felony DUI.
  • A second Excessive DUI conviction within five years.
  • An Aggravated DUI

Felony DUI offenses create more complications than misdemeanor DUI offenses, including stiffer penalties and lifelong problems gaining employment (many employers have policies against hiring felons), obtaining insurance, and exercising some civil liberties.

A felony DUI is a serious matter. The penalties that can result from a conviction can be life changing.

Prison Sentence

    • A felony DUI conviction can result in a prison sentence of up to ten-years. Even if the court chooses to order probation instead of a prison, the sentence will include a term county jail term. The minimum sentence for a third-time DUI is 30-days in jail, but felony DUIs often include a jail term far in excess of the minimum.

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.
