Will I Go To Jail For A First DUI In Idaho?

Will I Go To Jail If Convicted Of A DUI?

Probably Not...Each case has its own unique evidence, and it is up to the judge to determine sentence based upon those unique set of facts. The maximum punishment for a first DUI in Idaho is up to one year in jail - although this is a possibility, it almost never happens. In most cases, if you are convicted of a first time DUI, you will usually be sentenced to probation, a drivers license suspension, fines/cost, alcohol education, and some sort term of jail - 5-10 days is not uncommon. Typically this jail time can be served through community service or SILD (picking up trash on the side of the road in an orange vest).
