How long can a state or county in Maine take to prosecute a DUI/OUI

Thank you for your question today.

DUI/OUI is considered a Class D offense in Maine. Under Title 17 of the state statutes, a prosecution for a Class D offense must occur within 3 years of the time the alleged crime was committed. Thus, they have 3 years in which to charge an individual, though typically they would do so much sooner.
