Reasons For A Felony DUI Charge in Idaho

In Idaho, you can be charged with a felony DUI for many reasons:

  • Third DUI conviction in 10 year period
  • Second excessive/enhanced DUI (.20 or higher BAC) conviction in 5 years
  • DUI conviction within 15 years of a previous felony DUI conviction (of any kind)
  • DUI where there is bodily injury

Since a felony conviction may result in significant prison time and a lengthy driver’s license suspension (up to five years after your release from incarceration), in a felony DUI case the stakes are considerably high.
