BOISE, ID – A former Boise County Deputy was sentenced for a DUI crash in court on Wednesday afternoon.
“I’m just sorry to the citizens of Boise County, the sheriff’s office and all of the law enforcement officers — because I let them down,” said Nathan “Nate” Deuel in the Boise County Courthouse. “I’m sorry for what I did. My actions weren’t intentional.”
Deuel worked in law enforcement for seven years before being hired as a Boise County sheriff’s deputy in 2010. He resigned last fall, after crashing his patrol car on Oct. 27 and being subsequently arrested for misdemeanor DUI.
Deuel pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced last Wednesday to 180 days in jail, with 170 suspended and one day credit for time served. He was also given the option of converting nine days of jail time to community service, which he accepted. Deuel has already completed 32 hours of alcohol counseling.
This was not Deuel’s first DUI charge. He was convicted of driving under the influence in 1996.
Driving under the influence charges can incur strict punishments, including expensive fines and fees, driver’s license revocation, community service, and jail time. If you have recently been arrested for drinking and driving in Idaho, act fast and contact a DUI lawyer for help immediately.
Idaho DUI attorneys do whatever it takes to make sure your charges are either significantly reduced or wiped out altogether – especially if you were arrested on officer suspicion alone or were issued a faulty breath test. When you work with a drunk driving attorney, you can rest easy knowing your rights will be upheld and your case will end with the best possible outcome.
