Any person, having received notice and an opportunity for a hearing as provided in this code, who knowingly fails to comply with an order issued by a Hearing Officer under this chapter, including the issuance of a subpoena, shall, if the order is not stayed by a court of competent jurisdiction prior to its effective date, be guilty of contempt. Contempt shall be punishable by a fine not less than $200.00 nor more than $500.00 for each offense. Each day that the violation continues shall be considered a separate and distinct offense. In a prosecution under this section, it shall not be a defense that a person came into compliance with an order, sought judicial review of it, or made efforts to comply with an order subsequent to its effective date.
