Maine Revised Statutes

§1349-C. Requirements of administrative release

1.   If the court imposes a suspended sentence with administrative release under section 1349-B, the court shall attach requirements of administrative release, as authorized by this section, as the court determines to be reasonable and appropriate to help ensure accountability and rehabilitation of the person. The court-imposed requirements of administrative release must include a requirement that the convicted person refrain from criminal conduct and may include a requirement that the person pay to the appropriate county an administrative supervision fee of not more than $50 per month, as determined by the court, for the term of the administrative release. In determining the amount of the fee, the court shall take into account the financial resources of the person and the nature of the burden its payment imposes. When a person fails to pay the administrative supervision fee, the court may revoke administrative release as provided in sections 1349-D and 1349-E unless the person shows that failure to pay was not attributable to a willful refusal to pay or to a failure on that person's part to make a good faith effort to obtain the funds required for the payment.
[ 2005, c. 288, §3 (AMD) .]
2.   In addition to a requirement that the convicted person refrain from criminal conduct and a requirement that the convicted person pay all assessments, surcharges, fees and costs required by law, the court in its sentence may require the convicted person:
A. To pay any fine imposed by the court as part of the sentence; [2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW).]
B. To make any restitution to each victim of the crime imposed by the court; [2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW).]
C. To perform any community service work imposed by the court as part of the sentence; or [2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW).]
D. To satisfy any other requirement reasonably related to helping ensure the accountability and rehabilitation of the person. [2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW).]
[ 2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW) .]
3.   The convicted person must be given an opportunity to address the court on the requirements that are proposed to be attached and must, after the sentencing, be given a written statement setting forth the specific requirements on which the person is being administratively released.
[ 2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW) .]
