After being charged with multiple counts of felony DUI, Milhelich was booked into the Ada County Jail on Oct 1. The Boise Police Department booked her into the jail.

The prosecutor will now determine the charges that can be pursued against Milhelich.

So far, the authorities have not released the toxicology report of Milhelich. Once the report becomes public, it will be possible to see how drunk she was when she caused the accident.

In addition to the criminal charges, Chavez and her family may also be able to pursue civil litigation against Milhelich. Such litigation can result in an award of compensatory damages for the immense loss of the plaintiffs.
