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.

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.
