Worthless Checks

In Florida, there are several charges that relate to checks and the writing of checks. If a person writing a check knows that the bank account has insufficient funds to cover the check, then State Prosecutors may file criminal charges against the drafter. Depending on the amount of the check written, this can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony–but generally worthless checks written for an amount over 150 dollars is a felony punishable up to five (5) years in prison. Florida Statute § 832.05(2) or § 832.05(4).
