State v. Mourino

Justia Opinion SummaryDefendant pleaded not guilty to passing a stopped school bus in violation of 29-A Me. Rev. Stat. 2308(2). After a bench trial, the trial court found Defendant guilty and imposed a $250 fine. Defendant filed a motion for findings of fact, which was denied. Defendant then appealed, arguing that "meeting or overtaking a school bus from either direction" means that the statute's commend to stop applies when a school bus is approached from the front or the rear but not when the bus is approached from the side at a "T" intersection, as occurred in this case. The Supreme Court affirmed the conviction, holding that the trial court did not err in rejecting Defendant's interpretation of the statute and in finding Defendant guilty as charged.
