Bad Check Writing in Las Vegas

By Law Office of Chip Siegel  Jun. 15, 2010 11:30a

If you or someone you know has been accused of writing a bad check, then it is important to seek legal advice to determine the best course of action and make sure your rights are being protected. When people write bad checks, it's quite often during a time period of financial trouble, but the consequences of having criminal charges brought against you can be even more troubling and stressful. In the state of Nevada, it's a crime to knowingly write a bad check and you can be charged for such. If a check is written that exceeds $250, you may even be faced with felony charges and potentially be imprisoned in the state penitentiary.
