Maine District Courts That Handle Misdemeanor OUI Cases

There are one or more Maine District Courts in each county served by 36 judges. District Courts have limited jurisdiction and cannot prosecute felony charges, with the exception of initial appearances and bond hearings. Most DUI driving under the influence and OUI operating under the influence cases are misdemeanors and can be heard in District Court.

However, criminal cases heard in a United States District Court are not eligible for jury trials. There is a very limited time to request a jury trial and have the case moved to a Maine Superior Court.

In some counties, the District and Superior Courts have been unified into one court to hear different types of criminal cases.

Below is a complete list of Maine’s District Courts grouped by county. To determine which court will hear your OUI case, look on your ticket or bail papers that the jail gave you upon being released. On one of the many papers you were handed, look for the name and address of the court where you must appear to face your criminal charge and enter of plea of guilty or not guilty. Other forms you received upon your release include a personal property release form, and a vehicle impound form.

Call criminal defense lawyer John S. Webb of Webb Law Firm immediately if you are due in District Court next week. You can bet an assistant district attorney is already preparing a solid case against you.

"Without a doubt one of the best legal teams in Maine. If you have an issue that needs legal assistance give them a call. They will listen, they will guide you and they will explain the legal aspects of your situation and if and how they can help you. You won't be disappointed." Lou C.
★★★★★
"I hired John twice to help with two different legal situations. He was outstanding in every regard for both cases. For one of the cases, we were led to believe it was hopeless, until we met John Webb. John much to my surprise took the case, and gave us hope. I know for a fact he worked over and beyond what he charged us for, and landed a very favorable result. You cannot get a more honest, hard working, knowledgeable, skilled lawyer than John Webb." Maureen
