(a) No person shall keep a place where beer or intoxicating liquors are sold, furnished, or given away in violation of law. The court, on conviction for a subsequent violation of this section, shall order the place where the beer or intoxicating liquor is sold, furnished, or given away to be abated as a nuisance or shall order the person so convicted to give bond payable to the state in the sum of $1,000, with sureties to the acceptance of the court, that the person will not sell, furnish, or give away beer or intoxicating liquor in violation of law and will pay all fines, costs, and damages assessed against the person for that subsequent violation of this section. The giving away of beer or intoxicating liquors, or any other device to evade this section, constitutes unlawful selling.
