Eavesdropping in Maine Jails: Database of attorney calls recorded by Maine jails
Maine jails recorded nearly 1,000 calls from inmates to their attorneys at the Aroostook, Androscoggin, Franklin and Kennebec county jails. The Maine Monitor filed public records requests to obtain the records, which span June 2019 to May 2020.
Public records requests were denied by eight other counties. The Maine Monitor is pursuing a lawsuit to obtain data on jail phone recordings from York County.
