1. The alleged victim in the sexual assault trial of former Kennebunk High School teacher Jill Lamontagne testified Monday that their relationship began when she was helping him improve his English grade. “Things became more personal between us I guess, and then escalated to sexual,” he said while on the stand at York County Superior Court in Alfred on Monday afternoon on the first day of Lamontagne’s trial. About two dozen teachers and community members who support Lamontagne stood outside the courthouse before the trial began, holding signs such as “We stand with Jill,” Justice for Jill,” “Jill is the victim.” (WMTW)

2. Starting yesterday, fines for certain speeding violations have decreased by about 15 percent. Maine’s Violations Bureau recently conducted a study to see where Maine compares to other New England states regarding speeding fines. They found that Maine’s fines for driving 1-19 miles per hour over the speed limit, were higher than other states. So, a speeding ticket for driving 10-14 miles over the speed limit now will drop from $152 to $129. (NewsCenterMaine)
