Upon application by the Chairperson of the Council, the Tribal Judge shall issue an order directing the Tribal Law Enforcement Office to seize all tobacco products from wherever purchased and by whoever owned from any tobacco outlet being operated in violation of this chapter. Within three days of such seizure, after adequate notice to the person operating such outlet, a hearing shall be held in Tribal Court at which time such person shall be given an opportunity to present evidence in defense of his activities. If the Tribal Judge shall determine by a preponderance of the evidence that such tobacco outlet was being operated in violation of this chapter, the Tribal Judge may impose a penalty of not less that $50.00 or more than $250.00 for each such violation, and in addition may declare a forfeiture to the Tribe of all or any part of the tobacco products seized as described above. Any nonmember of the Tribe found to be in violation of this chapter may be excluded from the Yurok Reservation under existing Tribal Law, custom, or tradition governing exclusion of undesirable persons.
