§ 5-10. Commercialization; herpetoculture.

(a) It is unlawful to take, possess, buy, sell, offer to buy or sell or barter any herptile, or their eggs, any resulting offspring, or parts taken from the wild in this State for commercial purposes unless otherwise authorized by law.

(b) The trier of fact may infer that a person is collecting from the wild within this State for commercial purposes if he or she possesses indigenous herptiles, in whole or in part, for which no documentation exists stating that the animals were legally collected from the wild outside this State.

(c) (Blank).

(d) A valid, Department-issued Herpetoculture permit shall apply only to indigenous herptile taxa. A Herpetoculture permit shall not be required in order to commercialize non-indigenous herptile taxa except as otherwise prohibited or regulated under this Act or federal law.

(e) Indigenous herptile taxa collected from the wild in this State may not be bred unless otherwise authorized by the Department for research or recovery purposes unless otherwise authorized by this Act or administrative rule.

(a) If a marriage is in other respects lawful and is consummated with the full belief on the part of the persons married, or either of them, that they have been lawfully joined in marriage, then the marriage is not voidable for any of the following reasons:

(1) the licensing officer did not have jurisdiction to issue the license;

(2) there was an omission, informality, or irregularity of form in the application for the license or in the license itself;

(3) either or both witnesses to the marriage were incompetent;

(4) the marriage was solemnized after the expiration date of the license;

(5) there were no witnesses to the marriage if the valid license was issued and if the solemnization of the marriage can be otherwise proven.

(b) If a license has been issued and the marriage solemnized as provided in this chapter and the parties to it have immediately thereafter assumed the habit and repute of husband and wife and have continued to cohabit as husband and wife for one year or until the death of either of them, the marriage shall not be void or voidable solely on the ground the license cannot be produced.
