Maine Sgt. Reported To Work Drunk
November 27, 2012
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.
Bergan was sentenced Monday evening by District Court Judge Bernard O’ Mara. The judgment came after Bergan’s attorney, Michael Harman of Millinocket, argued unsuccessfully to challenge the administration and results of field sobriety and intoxilyzer tests conducted on Bergan on June 28.
