Manhattan Criminal Lawyer Discusses Bouncing a Check
As an experienced Manhattan Criminal Lawyer, clients will often ask me if bouncing a check is a crime. In New York, if you pass a check that’s bad and there was intent to do so, you may be charged with a crime. It’s a very serious crime with very serious consequences; high fines with the potential to go to jail or even being placed on probation.
However, if there was no intent and there was simply an oversight or accounting error, very often you will not be charged with a crime, and if you are, there’s an explanation. If you’re charged with a crime that involves a bad check, please set up a free consultation with me.
