If you received a DUI or DWI in another State, such as New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania, or Washington DC, but you are a Maryland driver, then the consequences for your license can be completely different from a local licensee who gets charged with the same offense. As such, if you are a Maryland licensee, and get a DUI in another state, the MVA in Maryland can still sanction you.
If you are a Maryland driver and receive DUI or DWI in another state, the MVA could sanction you if you are convicted of an alcohol offense. The points will not transfer, but the conviction does, and the Maryland MVA will likely send you a letter to request a hearing on the potential sanction. if you receive this letter, it is extremely time-sensitive, so contact a lawyer immediately to discuss your potential options.
