§61-10-8. Gaming at outhouse of hotel; penalty.
If the keeper of a hotel or tavern let or hire to another
person any outhouse or other place, which has been at any time
appurtenant to or held with the house kept by him, with intent that
unlawful gaming be permitted thereat, he shall suffer the same
punishment and incur the same forfeiture as if such unlawful gaming
were permitted at his own principal house; and in a prosecution
therefor, if the gaming be proved, it shall be presumed that such
outhouse or other place was let or hired with intent aforesaid,
unless the presumption be repelled in the manner provided for in
the preceding section.
