Driving Under The Influence (DUI) is typically a misdemeanor criminal charge. However, aggravating factors such as multiple prior DUI convictions can lead to felony DUI charges. Below is an excerpt from the Idaho Legislature website showing how Driving Under the Influence is defined under Idaho Code. The crime is punishable by a significant fine, jail, and a court-imposed driver’s license suspension. Further, the Idaho Department of Transportation automatically suspends the driver’s license of individuals accused of DUI shortly after the individual is cited. Before a person can drive again, an interloc device must be installed in their car. To fight the automatic suspension, one must notify the Department of Transportation immediately following the DUI.
