(a) Upon a second or any subsequent conviction or bond forfeiture for any violation of any alcoholic beverage control law of this state pertaining to the control, regulation, and handling of spirituous, vinous, malt liquors or beverages, or any amendment to any existing law or any new law on the same subject hereafter enacted, it shall be the duty of the court convicting the person for a second time, or forfeiting a bond for a second time, or forfeiting a bond or convicting a person after a previous conviction or bond forfeiture for such an offense, to require the defendant to execute bond in the sum of two hundred dollars ($200), after a hearing thereon, to be of good behavior for a period of twelve (12) months insofar as the laws of the State of Arkansas on spirituous, vinous, or malt liquors or beverages affect him.

(b) Should any person violate the provisions of the bond, the bond, after a hearing thereon, shall be forfeited. The person shall be, for all subsequent violations of the liquor laws or bond forfeitures, placed under a five hundred dollar ($500) bond of the same provisions, to ensure good behavior from the violation of the liquor laws.
