SECTION 5-29-34



   § 5-29-34  Penalty for violations generally

– Evidence of unauthorized practice. –

Any person who practices or attempts to practice podiatry in this state,

without being licensed by and registered with the board, or without registering

and obtaining annually a certificate of registration, as provided in this

chapter, or who shall violate of which is not by law provided, and any person,

firm or corporation owning or carrying on a podiatry business and in that

business employing or permitting any person to practice podiatry in this state,

without being licensed and obtaining an annual certificate as stated in this

chapter, is guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, shall be fined not less

than two thousand dollars ($2,000) nor more than five thousand dollars

($5,000), or imprisoned for not more than two (2) years, either or both, in the

discretion of the court. In no case where any provision of this chapter has
