You should always request a dmv hearing after a DUI arrest. Failure to request a hearing will trigger the administrative suspension after the temporary license expireds. In WI, you have 10 days to request the hearing after the date of the arrest. She should consult with an attorney immediately.

You have nothing to lose by requesting the the hearing but if you miss the deadline your license will be revoked.
