Cited for DUI in California, but I hold a valid Wisconsin drivers license. I have yet to be convicted through Courts or DMV.

Asked over 1 year ago - Chetek, WI

Cited for DUI in California, but I hold a valid Wisconsin drivers license. I have yet to be convicted through Courts or DMV. I am wondering what the ramifications on my WI drivers license will be if convicted. I understand that California is a part of the interstate drivers compact, but Wisconsin is not. How and when does Wisconsin find out about a conviction? Also what will I be facing through the WI DMV. I have called the WI DMV and I know that IID's are a court order not a DMV order so I am not concerned about that.
