Maine police officer sentenced for reporting to work in her cruiser drunk
She will lose her license for 90 days and pay a $500 fine, but she avoided jail time
Bangor Daily News
HOULTON, Maine — A Maine State Police sergeant summoned in late June for operating her state police cruiser while under the influence of alcohol acknowledged Monday that she has a problem with alcohol and is getting the help she needs.
While Sgt. Julie Bergan will lose her license for 90 days and pay a $500 fine, she avoided jail time recommended by Aroostook County District Attorney Todd Collins and instead will take part in a first offender OUI alternative sentencing program in Penobscot County.
