Not all checks that fail to clear the bank can be prosecuted. First, the check must have been passed in Labette County, Kansas. This means the transaction where the check was exchanged for something of value must have happened in this county. The person that accepted the check must be able to identify the person that gave them the check. This means that they must either personally know the person or have required a drivers’ license before accepting the check. Finally, the person that passed the check must have actually had the intent to defraud the person that accepted the check. This means they must have known the check would not clear and exchanged the check for soemthing of value.
Our office has prepared a package that can be used for submitting a bad check to our office for prosecution. This package is downloadable as a fillable PDF.
