Maine Revised Statutes

§125. Personal use or receipt of money from treasury or credit prohibited

The Treasurer of State shall not in any way receive for his own use any interest, premium, gratuity or benefit by reason of any money belonging to the State, or of any loan obtained for the State or for keeping on hand or circulating the bills of any bank; but whatever is so received shall be accounted for to the State. He shall not loan or use in his own business, or for his own benefit, any such money, or permit any other person to do so, unless authorized by law, on pain of forfeiting a sum equal to the amount so used or loaned, to be recovered by indictment.
