Maine Revised Statutes

§11228. Certification by record custodian

1. Certificate admissible.   Notwithstanding any other law or rule of evidence, a certificate by the custodian of the records of the bureau, when signed and sworn to by that custodian, or the custodian's designee, is admissible in a judicial or administrative proceeding as prima facie evidence of any fact stated in the certificate or in any documents attached to the certificate.
[ 2015, c. 280, §9 (NEW) .]
2. Qualified witness.   With 10 days' written notice to the prosecution, the defendant may request that a qualified witness testify to the matters of which the certificate under subsection 1 constitutes prima facie evidence. The notice must specify those matters concerning which the defendant requests testimony. The certificate is not prima facie evidence in those matters.
