(1) Misdemeanors: Any person convicted of a violation of any section or provision of this code which is deemed a misdemeanor may be fined in a sum not to exceed three hundred dollars ($300.00) for the offense and may be confined in jail for a period of not more than six (6) months. Either or both such fine and imprisonment may be imposed; and in addition thereto, any person so convicted shall pay such costs as the court may assess. (1996 Code)
(2) Infractions: When the offense is designated as an infraction by any section or provision of this code or by state law, it is punishable only by a penalty not exceeding one hundred dollars ($100.00) and no incarceration may be imposed. In addition to such penalty, any person so sentenced shall pay such costs as the court may assess. (Ord. 10-002, 4-20-2010)
A. Unless a penalty is specifically otherwise provided, the penalty provisions herein shall be applicable to every section of this code as though it were a part of each and every separate section. A separate offense shall be deemed committed upon each day a required duty or obligation remains unperformed or such act continues, unless otherwise specifically provided in this code. So, whenever the doing of any act or the omission to do any act constitutes a breach of any section or provision of this county code and there shall be no fine or penalty specifically declared for such breach, the provisions of this section shall apply.
B. In all cases where the same offense is made punishable or is created by different clauses or sections of this code, the Canyon County prosecuting attorney may elect under which to proceed, but not more than one recovery shall be had against the same person for the same offense; provided, that the revocation of a license or permit shall not be considered a recovery or penalty so as to bar any other penalty from being enforced. (1996 Code)
