What Penalties Do I Face?

Passing a bad check can result in a variety of charges, including larceny and fraud. Due to Nevada’s large gaming presence, charges of similar nature can be brought against a person for defaulting on casino markers. Penalties for a conviction will vary depending on the amount the fraudulent payment was worth and if the defendant has any prior history of passing bad checks.

If convicted, you could face the following consequences:

  • Restitution for the check amount
  • Up to four years in prison
  • Fines up to $5,000
  • A felony offense on your record

Allegations of writing bad checks can destroy a person’s reputation and potentially make finding employment a real struggle. If you are facing charges in relation to a bad check, it is imperative that you contact a lawyer from our firm as soon as possible to determine the best course of action for your defense.
