BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A new report from the Idaho Supreme Court shows drug cases were on the rise last year but the number of drunken driving cases has dropped. There were more than 7,500 criminal cases filed in Idaho’s district courts last year.

The Idaho Supreme Court Annual Report shows the number of drug cases have increased dramatically over the last five years, with 35 percent more drug felonies filed in 2013 compared to 2008 and 14 percent more misdemeanors filed during the same time period.

But felony drunken driving cases were down 15 percent and misdemeanor cases were down 14 percent compared to five years ago. Overall, fewer misdemeanor cases of all types were filed last year, according to the report, with five percent fewer cases filed in 2013 compared to 2012.
