If you were charged with a DUI in Idaho, and the case was dismissed, or you were found not guilty, you might be in a position to have that arrest record expunged or sealed. If you were found guilty or pled guilty to a DUI offense, that conviction will stay on your driving record, and it can be used against you in being sentenced for another DUI offense in the next 10 years. As per a personal criminal history, that conviction could follow you for life, and interfere with job, housing and educational opportunities. In any case, you’ll want to do whatever is legally possible to avoid a DUI conviction. We might be in a position to help you do that.
Alternatives Might Exist
Idaho doesn’t prohibit plea bargains in DUI cases. On that basis, if the evidence against you is overwhelming in a DUI prosecution, you might be able to enter a guilty plea to reckless driving or even inattentive driving. Much depends on the facts and evidence in your case.
