An eastern Idaho Attorney is facing 20 years in prison and a million dollar fine.  68 year old Robin Dunn of Rigby was indicted by a federal grand jury to distribute fentanyl and meth and distribution charges.  The charges stem from alleged incidents that occurred in 2022 and 2023 in Eastern Idaho. 

Officials at the Idaho Division of Motor Vehicles have eliminated the convenience fee that had been charged to Idahoans who pay for their license reinstatement online.  Idahoans with a suspended driver’s license will still need to satisfy the other requirements and wait the required period of time to get their driving privileges back.

The University of Idaho and a former law professor have reached a $750,000 settlement, resolving a race and gender discrimination lawsuit.  Shaakirrah Sanders joined the U of I’s law school faculty in 2011, and in 2018, she was the first African-American descendant of slaves to become a full law school professor at the university.  But in June 2019, she sued the university, saying she was subjected to insulting, humiliating and discriminatory conduct related to her gender or race.
