Yes, it is very likely (and probably a certainty) that you will receive a Summons and Complaint in the mail. On this document will be the charge(s) that have been filed against you, as well as your first court date.
Its important to remember that the Driver's License revocation is a separate process from the criminal court case. It is possible to challenge the suspension, but you have to be proactive and formally request a hearing within 30 days of receiving the notice.
I would imagine that it won't take too long before you receive the Summons and Complaint for the criminal case (maybe a week).
I hope you find this information helpful and feel free to contact me if you have any other questions about your case or the process. I wish you the best of luck.
