The officer followed me for over a mile, from the outskirts of town, through town, and multiple corners, before pulling me over for crossing the center line on a road the doesn't have a painted, distinguished, line. Also, in our town, there is odd and even parking in the winter time. During that night the vehicles were to park on the side of the road in which I was driving, forcing me over, past the middle of the road. Also, there was snow earlier that week and the roads were covered enough that you couldn't see the blacktop. In this, the officer had also found a small amount of marijuana and a pipe, which he said he could not charge me with because he illegally searched my car. This is my first offence and since the event the county police officers have been driving past my work and home.

An Illinois lawyer told me I face a one year suspension and a possible revocation of my license in Illinois. How does this affect my Wisconsin DL? If I get convicted what happens to my Wisconsin license.

I have reinstated my license in WI, and I am not allowed to drive in MN until Feb 7th. Not sure if I have to pay a fee to drive or if I can just start driving.

I think you should be glad you're not in jail! Judges have wide latitude to order things like IIDs.
They have offered: plead guilty to owi 1st and owi 2nd, fines of $900 and $1500, 40 days jail, IID, and continue AODA, and they will dismiss Resisting an Officer and traffic violation. What can/should my attorney counter offer be??
Your attorney can/should determine that.
On the WI DMV site, it says that no points are assessed for convictions from other states, but the conviction is on the WI driver record. What does this mean for me? Will my insurance be impacted? I travel for my job, and have a car rental membership where I skip the counter. Will I run into issues here?
These aren't really legal questions. Your insurance could go up as the conviction will be noted on your home record....
Arrested for OWI on 1-10. The pink informed conset paperwork that is supposed to have the instructions for filing was printed with little ink as I cannot read it, The county has given me the run around with most telling me they have no idea what I should do. I get the feeling they dont want me to get the hearing, none the less, I NEED to file today and have been unsucessfull in my internet searches. Can I file for this administrative review hearing without representation?
Probably not, unfortunately. Odds are that you will not be able to figure this out on your own without a lawyer in time...
