Maine Revised Statutes

§907. Jurisdiction

The District Court shall have original and concurrent jurisdiction with the Superior Court in all prosecutions under any provisions of this subchapter. Any person, arrested as a violator of said subchapter, shall with reasonable diligence be taken before the District Court in the division nearest to where the offense is alleged to have been committed for a warrant and trial, and in such case jurisdiction is granted to the District Court in adjoining divisions to be exercised in the same manner as if the offense had been committed in that division.
