§ 23.17. Enforcement by attorney general. The attorney general may
prosecute every person charged with a criminal offense in violation of
this article and regulations issued thereunder, or any violation of any
other law of this state applicable to or in respect to fraudulent
practices in connection with the offer, sale, negotiation or advertising
of syndication interests in theatrical productions, as defined herein.
In all such proceedings, the attorney general may appear in person or by
his deputy before any court of record or any grand jury and exercise all
the powers and perform all the duties in respect of such actions or
proceedings which the district attorney would otherwise be authorized or
required to exercise or perform; or the attorney general may in his
discretion transmit evidence, proof and information as to such offense
to the district attorney of the county or counties in which the alleged
violation has occurred, and every district attorney to whom such
evidence, proof and information is so transmitted may proceed to
investigate and prosecute any corporation, company, association, or
officer, manager or agent thereof, or any firm or person charged with
such violation. In any such proceeding, wherein the attorney general has
appeared either in person or by deputy, the district attorney shall only
exercise such powers and perform such duties as are required of him by
the attorney general or the deputy attorney general so appearing.
