My friends and I are all underaged. We were drinking in Ogunquit,
Maine, and were pulled over on the street, we were walking on the
sidewalk, acting sober and had no
alcohol or drugs on us. It was 2:30 AM and raining. We all failed the
breathalyzer test. THe police gave us all summons, a civil violation
offense charge. Violation 28A, section/ ordinance 2051 (Messy
handwriting, hard to tell on summons). This is the second summons I
have recieved for the same offense, illegal intoxication, only the
first time I got it I was in my home state of New Hampshire. What will
happen to me most likely? (Drivers liscense suspension, fine,
community service, etc?)

Dear rtom919-ga;

Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question.
According to the statutory provisions in the State of Maine, here is
what one can typically expect regarding a violation of 28-A MRSA
2051:

?A minor who violates this section commits a civil violation for which
a forfeiture shall must be adjudged of not less than $200 nor more
than $400 for the first offense; not less than $300 nor more than $600
for the 2nd offense, none of which may be suspended, except as
provided in paragraph B; and $600 for the 3rd and subsequent offenses,
none of which may be suspended, except as provided in paragraph B.

A. When a person is adjudged to have committed a first offense under
this section, the judge shall inform that person that the forfeitures
for the 2nd and subsequent offenses are mandatory and cannot be
suspended, except as provided in paragraph B. Failure to inform the
first offender that subsequent forfeitures are mandatory is not a
ground for suspension of any subsequent forfeiture.
B. The judge, as an alternative to or in addition to the civil
forfeitures required by this subsection, may assign the minor to
perform specified work for the benefit of the State, the municipality
or other public entity or charitable institution.?
