Will a DUI charge in another state count as previous case in another one?

I am facing a DUI case in my current state. I previously got arrested from a previous residence. Will this be a second DUI?

 

ANSWER:

Yes, in most states. In New Mexico, so long as the prior conviction from another state meets certain criteria then it will be counted as a prior; thus, making your present charge a DWI-2nd offense.
