If I plea guilty to my OWI, will the charges of refusing a breath test be dropped?

You would be best off at least reviewing the police reports to see what kind of case you have. At this point, if you plead to the OWI, there is a very good chance that the State will dismiss the refusal. On first offenses in the State of Wisconsin, a refusal counts the same way as a first offense. Hiring a lawyer to at least give you a professional opinion as to your case would be wise before you do anything else.
No the charges related to your refusal are separate from your dui charges and result in a separate and much longer suspension of your driving privilege. By all means, hire a lawyer.
