If you have 2 strikes in California, can Idaho use those against you, as well? Do they have a 3 strikes law in Idaho?

Asked over 1 year ago - Fairfield, CA

My brother has 2 strikes for violence in California. He is no longer on Parole, but just recently moved to Idaho. Unfortunately he and his girlfriend got into a domestic and he went to jail, Charges are domestic violence, resisting arrest and child endangerment. Worse case scenario what is facing? He has no bail on 2 of the charges and $75,000 on the child endangerment charge.

    Answered . Idaho does not have a 3 strikes law. Before you breathe a sigh of relief speak to an Idaho lawyer about the effect of priors on sentencing there.
