Boothbay Harbor Maine Operating Under the Influence (OUI) LawyersIf you get arrested and charged for operating under the influence (OUI) in Boothbay, your case will be handled by the court in Wiscasset. Please see that page for more details.

Boothbay Harbor Court Location

If you get arrested for operating under the influence (OUI) in Boothbay Harbor or any other location situated in Lincoln County, Maine, the court that will be hearing case will be the one in Wiscasset. The courthouse is located at 32 High Street, Wiscasset, Maine, and houses both the Maine District Court, as well as the Lincoln County Superior Court. The building made of brick, is two stories tall, and built on a hill just off Route 1, on the western fringes of downtown Wiscasset. Driving directions are available using Google Maps, and are also posted on the court’s website.

Parking

Parking at the courthouse in Wiscasset is extremely limited. While there is a lot directly behind the courthouse, on top of the hill, it fills up quickly. There is additional parking down the hill and further west, near the police station. Give yourself some extra time, in case there are no spots in the courthouse’s parking lot – it’s a short walk from the parking area near the police station.

Courtroom

There’s only one old courtroom in the Wiscasset Courthouse, on the second floor of the building. A number of judges and justices handle criminal cases during different times of year in the Wiscasset Courthouse, including Hon. Barbara Raimondi, Hon. Dan Billings, and Hon. Donald Martin, an active, but retired, judge. Other judges can rotate into the Wiscasset Courthouse, if there’s a need for them to help out.

You can access the courtroom on the second floor using either the stairs or the elevator. The stairs are directly in front of you when you enter the building through the main entrance. If you need to use the elevator, enter the building through the alternate entrance, near the main one, and the elevator will be right nearby.

If you need to visit the court clerk, their office is also on the second floor, down the hall from the main courtroom.

Penalties for Boothbay Harbor OUI charges

If the OUI investigation gathers strong evidence of an operating under the influence crime, you could end up getting convicted on drunk driving or drugged driving charges. The penalties of an OUI conviction continue to change and carry heavier penalties and fines as politicians continue to cater to special interest groups that want to punish drunk drivers. As a result, the sanctions for an OUI conviction, even one that does not involve a crash or injury,  are shockingly high for the severity of the crime:

No. of Offense (Last 10 Years) License Suspension Jail Time Minimum Fine
1st Offense 150 Days 0 – 96 Hours $500
2nd Offense 3 Years 7 Days $700
3rd Offense 6 Years 30 Days $1,100
4th Offense 8 Years 6 Months $2,100
