A Third Or Subsequent DUI Conviction Can Result In Felony DUI

A third DUI violation within five (5) years or a subsequent DUI violation with a previous Felony DUI or Aggravated DUI within ten (10) years, including withheld judgments, is a FELONY

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 ten-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.

For more information, see: Idaho Code §18-8005 - Penalties.
