What Are the Differences Between Felonies and Misdemeanors in Idaho?

Idaho recognizes certain differences between felony and misdemeanor charges:

  • Felonies: A felony is a crime that is punishable by death or imprisonment in a state prison. Depending on the charge, penalties range from a minimum of one year in the state prison to a life sentence.
  • Misdemeanors: Crimes that are not felonies or mere infractions are considered misdemeanors under Idaho law. Misdemeanors in Idaho may be punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for a period of not more than one year

Given certain situations, offenses that are usually charged as misdemeanors in Idaho may be enhanced to felonies. A conviction for a felony can have a serious effect on your future. In addition to possible incarceration, you may face a wide range of other consequences.

What Are the Penalties for a Felony Conviction?

Penalties for a felony conviction can include:

  • Loss of future employment potential
  • Loss of your voting rights
  • Loss of ability to carry a gun or other weapon
  • Loss of ability to serve on a jury
