Idaho’s Definitions of Misdemeanors & Felonies
In Idaho, Criminal Code Title 18, Chapter 1, Section 113 describes that any misdemeanor crime can be punished with up to six months in county jail and $1,000 in fines, unless a specific violation description says otherwise. To this end, you can assume that you will be facing these penalties at least if you are charged with a crime. Matters only get more severe if you are accused of a felony.
Under Idaho’s Criminal Code Title 18, Chapter 1, Section 111, a felony crime is any criminal violation that is “punishable by death or imprisonment in a state prison.” Although the last capital punishment in Idaho was carried out in 2011 for the triple-murder case of Paul Ezra Rhoades, the state still allows this penalty, or life in prison without parole. If there is no specific direction for a felony conviction, the default punishment based on the statute is five years in prison and a fine of $50,000. You need to move forward seriously with your felony defense, or the rest of your life will be jeopardized.
Crimes that can be listed as a misdemeanor or felony depending on circumstances include but are not limited to:
Drug sales and trafficking
Possession of any amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor in Idaho.
Driving under the influence (DUI)
Gun charges and restricted persons violations
Sexual assault or abuse
Burglary, robbery, and other theft crimes
Assault and battery
