The typical penalties for domestic violence stalking is a Class D crime in Maine – the most severe type of what used to be called a misdemeanor in Maine.

Convictions for domestic violence stalking carry up to 364 days in jail and up to $2,000 in fines.

However, a prior offense for domestic violence stalking or its equivalent – in Maine or elsewhere – increases the penalties for a conviction by enhancing the offense to a Class C crime.

Class C crimes carry up to five years in jail and up to $5,000 in fines.

Additionally, a domestic violence stalking offense can become a Class C crime if a defendant has a prior conviction on his or her record of violating a restraining order or their terms of release from prison, or a prior conviction of domestic violence assault.
