[Section 5505 effective January 1, 2022.]
§ 5505. Presumption of possession with intent to sell
There shall be a rebuttable presumption that a person possesses a covered animal part or product with intent to sell when the part or product is possessed by a retail or wholesale establishment or other forum engaged in the business of buying or selling similar items. This rebuttable presumption shall not preclude a court from finding intent to sell a covered animal part or product based on any other evidence that may serve to independently establish intent. (Added 2019, No. 169 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 2022.)
