Check Fraud Defense Law Firm
A lot of us have written a bad check or had a check bounce, but did you know that issuing a bad check creates a presumption that you did it intentionally? Once you receive notice that the check was not honored you only have a short number of days to correct the mistake and make the payment in full. If you do not make that payment within the prescribed time period you can be charged and convicted with a misdemeanor or felony depending on the amount of the bad check.
There have been people who have even been extradited from other states because they wrote a bad check for only $300! In other words, the state of Utah is willing to spend thousands of dollars to transport a criminal defendant from another state to stand trial for writing a bad check for only a few hundred dollars. It isn’t economical and seems a waste of taxpayer money but that should tell you just how serious the state of Utah takes the crime of issuing a bad check.
Did you Write a Bad Check?
If you wrote a bad check and did not make full payment within the limited amount of time you had to do so, you will need an attorney to defend you against possible misdemeanor and felony charges.
