In any hearing on a charge of illegally parking a motor vehicle, testimony that a vehicle bearing a certain license plate was found unlawfully parked as prohibited by the provisions of this Traffic Code, and further testimony that the record of the Ohio Registrar of Motor Vehicles shows that the license plate was issued to the defendant, shall be conclusive evidence that the vehicle was caused, allowed or permitted to be unlawfully parked by the defendant.  Provided that in the event that some person other than the registered owner pays the penalty for the violation citation at the Parking Violations Bureau or appears in court and enters a plea of guilty or no contest on the violation, then the owner shall no longer be deemed responsible for the violation.
