Section 6-5-153

Effect of establishment of nuisance in criminal proceedings.

In case the existence of such nuisance is established in a criminal proceeding in a court not having equitable jurisdiction, the district attorney shall proceed promptly under this division to enforce the provisions and penalties thereof, and the finding of the defendant guilty in such criminal proceedings, unless reversed or set aside, shall be conclusive as against the defendant as to the existence of the nuisance. The proceeds of the sale of the personal property as provided in Section 6-5-152 shall be applied in payment of the costs of the action and abatement, including the plaintiff's costs, or so much of such proceeds as may be necessary, except as provided in this division.
