In the past several weeks I have had more than 5 people call me who have an Illinois driver's license but were arrested in Wisconsin. Normally I get a call from people who were already found guilty of a DUI out of state and their license has been revoked by the Illinois Secretary of State, but in the past few weeks I have received a slew of calls from people who have been arrested for DUI in Wisconsin but have not yet been convicted.
What happens? As an experienced license reinstatement lawyer in Illinois I can confidently state that 99% of the time fate a client is convicted of a DUI in Wisconsin, the state of Illinois will revoke that persons license. If you have been charged with a DUI in Wisconsin and you feel that you have a low probability of beating ha charge, you should begin taking classes for DUI treatment in Illinois so that when the Illinois Secretary of State revokes your license you will be ready for your hearing.
You can always call my office if you have questions as to specifically what will happen and how to prepare for the hearing itself with the Secretary of State.
