The Maine Minimum Sentence for Sex Offenders Question did not make the November 5, 2013, ballot in the state of Maine as an indirect initiated state statute. The measure would have created a mandatory minimum sentence for persons convicted of sex offenses against victims that were under 12-years-old.[1]

Text of measure

The title of the measure, according to the Maine Secretary of State's website, read:[2]

An Act To Create Mandatory Minimum Sentences For Persons Convicted Of Certain Sex Offenses Against Victims Under 12 Years Of Age.

Path to the ballot

Supporters needed to turn in at least 57,277 valid signatures to the Maine Secretary of State's office by January 24, 2013, in order to make the ballot.

When contacted by Ballotpedia on January 24, the secretary's office stated that the proposal did not file petitions by the deadline.
