Meet Maine's newest crime: "Improper Contact"

This is where they make laws
On March 16, 2014 Governor LePage signed LD 1656 into law and created a new crime in Maine. It’s called “Improper Contact” and it’s an awkward fix for an unintended consequence of an unnecessary change to Maine’s bail code. I wrote before about LD 1656. You can read this post for more about how bail works in Maine.


My full post about the new law and the crime it creates is at Harmless Error on the Portland Press Herald site.
