entertainment establishment or adult-oriented retail business without first having

of this section shall be fined not more than $500 or imprisoned not more than 6 months,
(c) Any person, and in the case of corporation this shall include its principal stockholders,
board of directors, officers and persons engaged in the management of such establishment,
who shall engage in, carry on or participate in the operation of an adult entertainment
establishment in violation of this section shall be fined not more than $10,000 and
imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both.
(d) A certificate, certified by a member of the Commission, that a diligent search
of the Commission's records, those pertaining to licenses kept in conformity with
this chapter, has failed to disclose the existence of a valid license for an adult
entertainment establishment or adult-oriented retail establishment in question shall
be prima facie evidence of a violation of this section.
