Arrest Laws

Idaho Arrest Laws

Police officials are called peace officers, and they can arrest someone without a warrant when a crime is committed in their presence. When someone has committed a felony but not in their presence, they can arrest them then also. When a felony is known to have been committed, and an officer believes they have probable cause that someone committed it, they can do an Idaho warrant search and arrest them without a warrant. In response to the report that a crime is being committed is another time when a peace officer can arrest someone without a warrant.

Who has a Power of Arrest in Idaho?

Along with peace officers and other law enforcement agents authorized to arrest someone, any private citizen can also perform a citizen’s arrest. They can do so only when they witness a public offense being committed or someone admitted to committing a felony, but they did not observe it or when they know of a felony that was committed and has good reason to suspect that someone they know committed it. In any of those cases, they can arrest someone and bring them to the police for further processing.

How Long Will an Arrest Report Stay on your Idaho State Records?

Misdemeanors and felonies will stay on someone’s record for life if they were convicted. If however the arrests and charges were dropped or they were found not guilty then they have a chance of getting them expunged. They have within one year of the discharge to apply for expungement.

Can you Expunge your Records?

Yes, but only for arrests and charges that did not result in a conviction. Unfortunately, there are strict laws about expungement and most people’s criminal record will follow them for life. If they are eligible then they can apply using the forms you can find online and pay a fee. It may take a while, but they can use the iCourts system to track their progress until they receive a decision. All other offenses are not eligible to be expunged.
