   10         (8)(a) Each person involved in the conduct of any bingo
   11  game or instant bingo must be a resident of the community where
   12  the organization is located and a bona fide member of the
   13  organization sponsoring such game and may not be compensated in

   18  charge of the games, one of whom shall be present during the
   19  entire session at which the games are conducted. The
   20  organization conducting the games is responsible for posting a
   21  notice, which notice states the name of the organization and the
   22  designated member or members, in a conspicuous place on the
   23  premises at which the session is held or instant bingo is
   24  played. A caller in a bingo game may not be a participant in
   25  that bingo game.
   26         (b)A person who has been convicted of any gambling or
   27  gambling-related offense, as proscribed in chapter 849, or any
   28  felony offense may not participate in the administration of, or
   29  receive a financial benefit, gratuity, or compensation from any
   30  bingo game or instant bingo game for a period of 10 years after
   31  completion of any related sentence imposed on that person. This
   32  paragraph applies regardless of whether adjudication was
   33  withheld. A person who violates this paragraph commits a second
   34  degree misdemeanor, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s.
   35  775.083.
