(F) A violation of any provision of §§ 153.115 through 153.123 is hereby declared to be a nuisance per se. A violation of that subchapter is a municipal civil infraction, for which the fine shall be not less than $100 nor more than $500 for the first offense and not less than $500 nor more than $1,000 for subsequent offenses, in the discretion of the Court, and in addition to all other costs, damages, and expenses provided by law. For purposes of this division (F), SUBSEQUENT OFFENSE means a violation of the provisions of this subchapter committed by the same person within 12 months of a previous violation of the same provision of this subchapter for which the person admitted responsibility or was adjudicated to be responsible; provided, however, that offenses committed on subsequent days within a period of one week following the issuance of a citation for a first offense shall all be considered separate first offenses. Each day during which any violation continues shall be deemed a separate offense.
