The Check Enforcement Program is designed to allow dishonored check writers an opportunity to resolve their dishonored check crime and avoid a possible criminal record. The Program provides a win/win situation for everyone involved, including the person who wrote the dishonored check.
If a dishonored check writer elects to ignore this opportunity, they face possible prosecution and the real possibility of fines, court costs and even jail time.
The District Attorney wants people to understand their office considers check crime a serious matter.
The size of the check is not a deterrent. Even small checks are subject to prosecution if the check writer refuses to make restitution and complete the requirements of the Check Enforcement Program.
