The Penalties for a 3rd DUI in Idaho

These penalties underscore the importance of securing knowledgeable legal representation

  • Jail time: A third DUI in Idaho is a felony. That means convicted defendants are subject to a mandatory minimum of 30 days in jail and can face a prison sentence as long as 10 years.
  • Fines: There is a fine of up to $5,000 for convicted third-time offenders.
  • License suspension: The defendant's driving license can be suspended for a period ranging from 1 to 5 years.
  • Ignition interlock: Following the suspension period, installation of an Ignition Interlock Device on any vehicle driven by the defendant is mandatory.
  • Underage offenders: Those under 21 and convicted of a third DUI face up to six months in prison, a $2,000 traffic fine, and a license suspension.

Could the Breathalyzer Test Be Wrong?

The breathalyzer test, a common tool used by law enforcement to measure blood alcohol concentration (BAC), is not infallible and may sometimes produce inaccurate results. Several factors can contribute to a breathalyzer's wrongful assessment of a driver's BAC level, casting doubt on the reliability of the evidence used in DUI charges

For instance, the device requires regular calibration and maintenance to function correctly. Without stringent adherence to maintenance schedules, a breathalyzer might give skewed readings, potentially leading to unfair DUI charges. 

Additionally, certain medical conditions and dietary factors can interfere with breathalyzer results. Conditions such as acid reflux, diabetes, or even diets high in protein can produce substances in the breath that the device erroneously interprets as ethanol, which is found in alcoholic beverages. This misinterpretation can significantly inflate BAC readings, implicating individuals who were not over the legal alcohol limit. Likewise, external factors such as the use of mouthwash or breath fresheners containing alcohol just before a test can also temporarily spike breath alcohol levels, leading to inaccurately high readings.
