LEWISTON — The Livermore Falls town treasurer is expected to serve a four-day sentence later this month for drunk driving last year.

Rebecca E. Harmatys, 46, of Livermore was arrested in April 2023 on a charge of operating under the influence of alcohol and refusing to submit to arrest or detention, each a misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.

She also was charged with failing to notify of a motor vehicle accident, a misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

Harmatys pleaded guilty in November 2023 to the OUI charge in an agreement with prosecutors that included a sentence of four days in jail, a $1,000 fine, loss of her driver’s license for 150 days and a letter of apology to the arresting law enforcement agency, according to a clerk at 8th District Court.

Harmatys also pleaded guilty to failing to notify of an accident and was sentenced to two days in jail, which she will serve at the same time as the OUI sentence, the clerk said.

The refusal to submit to arrest charge was dismissed.


Harmatys is scheduled to report to Androscoggin County Jail on Feb. 16 by 5 p.m.

According to a police report, Harmatys was arrested after allegedly striking a sign on Gibbs Mill Road in Livermore before driving home on April 1, 2023.

A witness took down the license plate number and called police after the crash was reported, authorities said.

The 2018 Toyota struck a school zone advisory sign near the corner of Robinson Road, he said. Spruce Mountain Primary School is on that road.

Androscoggin County deputies went to Harmatys’ home on Haynorville Road, which is off Gibbs Mill Road, to investigate shortly after the crash occurred.

There was damage to the front of the vehicle, which is owned by Robert Harmatys, according to investigators.


Deputies determined Rebecca Harmatys was the driver of the vehicle. She was visibly impaired, according to the report.

During the investigation, Harmatys became uncooperative, was arrested and taken to Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn.

The original charges were dismissed because the arresting officer had been unavailable to appear in court.

Prosecutors later refiled the same charges against Harmatys.
