Interception of wire and oral communications is a “Class C” crime under the Maine state criminal code, and an interceptor is someone other than the sender or receiver of a communication who is not in the range of “normal unaided hearing” and has not been given the authority to hear or record the communication by a sender or receiver. Me. Rev. Stat. Ann. tit. 15, § 710. Thus, the statute does not prohibit a party to the conversation from recording.

Disclosure of the contents of intercepted communications, knowing the information was obtained by interception, is a “Class C” violation of the criminal code as well. Me. Rev. Stat. Ann. tit. 15, § 710.
