Pre-Arraignment / pre-waiver communications

Maine law prohibits prosecutors from speaking with unrepresented defendants prior to their arraignment or initial appearance date and without a written waiver executed in Court.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

If you are unrepresented and have not appeared in Court but have questions about your case or the criminal process, please contact the Maine Commission for Indigent Legal Services at (207) 287-3257 or email
