Legal Answers
59 Questions Answered
Q. What is the statute of limitations on being charged with Class E misdemeanor? How does Maine issue warrants?
A: The statute of limitations for a Class E misdemeanor is 3 years. There are some exceptions and exertions that can apply, such as when the person is absent from the State of Maine. You'll want to review Title 17-A Section 8 of the Maine Revised Statutes. https://legislature.maine.gov/statutes/17-A/title17-Asec8.html

A warrant is issued by either Judge, Justice, or Justice of the Peace. In order for a warrant to issue, the Judge, Justice, or Justice of the Peace must find there is probable cause that a crime has been committed for an arrest warrant to issue.
Q. How long after indictment returned does a state have to prosecute of you're already incarcerated serving another county
A: You have a right to a speedy trial on an indictment. If the State failed to prosecute the case for 12 months--due to no fault of your own--you can raise this as a speedy trial claim and request a dismissal. There are four factors the court considers in whether to dismiss a case for a speedy trial violation: (1) the length of the delay, (2) the reasons for the delay, (3) the assertion of the right, and (4) prejudice.
Q. I'm on a deferred disposition And am not aloud to use or posses alcohol but on the marijuana box it has nothing
A: If the deferred disposition agreement and bail bond do not prohibit using marijuana then using it will not be considered a violation of either. Possessing marijuana is still a federal crime in Maine. The Justice Department is unlikely to charge or prosecutor misdemeanor possessions of marijuana in the District of Maine.
