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
If convicted, you could face the following consequences:
- Restitution for the check amount
- Up to four years in prison
- Fines up to $5,000
