If you have been charged with a second DUI within ten years of your first DUI conviction in the Boise area, then you will face exponentially harsher punishments. With each subsequent DUI, you will be faced with staggeringly more severe consequences. For a 2nd DUI conviction, you will face punishments such as a minimum fine of $500, along with up to nine months imprisonment, and thirty day impoundment of your vehicle. If you are charged of a third DUI within ten years, you will be faced with a third-degree felony and will be at risk of fines up to $5,000 and five years' imprisonment, along with 90 day vehicle immobilization.
If you are charged of a third DUI offense within ten years, you will be faced with a third-degree felony and will be at risk of fines up to $5,000 and five years' imprisonment, along with 90 day vehicle immobilization.
