SECTION 33
Penalties
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 4
§ 33. Penalties. Every person found traveling and trading within this
state contrary to the provisions of this article, or contrary to the
terms of any license that may have been granted to him under this
article, shall, for each offense, forfeit to the town in which the
offense shall be committed the sum of twenty-five dollars, to be applied
to the support of the poor of the town. Every person traveling or
trading within this state, having a license, who refuses to produce a
license as a peddler to any officer or citizen who demands the
production of the same shall, for each offense, forfeit to the town in
which the demand is made the sum of ten dollars, to be applied to the
support of the poor thereof. The refusal of any such person to produce a
license when demanded shall be presumptive evidence that he is traveling
and trading without a license.

No action for the recovery of any penalty imposed by this article
shall be maintained unless it be brought within sixty days after the
commission of the offense charged.
