It is unlawful to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol in Idaho. Drugs can include any substance that affects your brain, nervous system, or muscles, ultimately influencing your motor skills and level of awareness. Regardless of whether or not the drug was prescribed by a doctor, you could be arrested for driving under the influence of drugs (DUID). These charges can lead to life-altering penalties, such as probation, fines, and driver's license suspension.

What penalties can be employed in DUI & drug cases?
Just because officers believe that there were drugs in your system while you were behind the wheel, it doesn’t always mean that you were under the influence. Your driving behavior could have been due to fatigue, simple distraction, or other issues. Our attorneys can review the various factors surrounding your arrest, fighting tirelessly to defend your rights and shield you from the harsh penalties.
The penalties you could be facing for first-time DUID charges include the following:
Depending on the circumstances, you may even face time in jail or other severe consequences. For example, if you caused an accident and reportedly had drugs in your system, the prosecution may use this to try to increase the penalties against you. That is why it is so crucial that you retain a legal advocate during this difficult time.
