Do warrants and conviction laws follow you state to state?

I got my 4th DUI visiting Vermont, suspended licence and speeding. The ticket written by police in VT wrote a wrong licence plate number. Three attempts on breathalyzer did not work. They brought me to a fire station to have an EMT draw blood. The results were slightly above the legal limit. What are the consequences if convicted and does a warrant follow you state to state? I reside in CT.

    Warrants are usually honored by other states. Thus if one were arrested in Connecticut and a warrant showed up from another state, they could be held until the other state comes and picks them up. The person should contact a Vermont Lawyer regarding the process and the consequences of a 4th conviction in Vermont.

    If there is an arrest warrant issued by the authorities in one state, you can be arrested in another state. If you are arrested in that other state (and to some extent the authorities in the other state have some discretion), the process is then an extradition proceeding if the issuing state decides to take you back. A conviction may impact proceedings in another state. It all depends on the nature of the conviction and the pending charges in the second state.
