Understanding Idaho DUI Charges

In the state of Idaho, it is against the law to operate a vehicle while you are under the influence of drugs or when your blood alcohol content (BAC) is at 0.08% or higher. There are a number of different reasons why a member of law enforcement may pull you over, but if they suspect you are drunk or intoxicated, the situation can escalate quickly.

If you are underage, the situation will be looked at even more seriously, as it is illegal to drink alcohol under the age of 21. The charges you are facing can lead to serious penalties which affect both your current and future life.

  • The consequences you could be facing include:
  • 1st DUI offense: Up to 6 months in jail, a fine of up to $1,000, and 90-180 days of license suspension.
  • 2nd DUI offense: 10 days to 1 year in jail, a fine of up to $2,000, 1 year of license suspension, and an IID.
  • 3rd DUI offense: 30 days to 5 years in jail, a fine of up to $5,000, 1-5 years of license suspension, and an IID.

Additional Consequences of DUI

If you are convicted of a DUI, your driving privileges will be affected by both your restrictions and having an IID (Ignition Interlock Device). Depending on the type of job and lifestyle you have, this may completely restrict your ability to get around. If your job requires you to drive, you may be fired. Your reputation and ability to get a job in the future may also be affected by having a DUI conviction on your permanent record.
