Accused of Bouncing a Check
I have represented many people in the state of Connecticut accused of bouncing a check. If you are facing charges such as this, there are some factors that the court will consider. I had a client once who paid his accountant of five years with a post-dated check.
He told her that he had to wait for his franchise to distribute his earnings for the last quarter before she could cash the check. It took longer for his franchise to give him his distribution. The accountant grew tired of waiting and cashed the check. My client ended up getting charged with bouncing the check, which was a felony. I was able to make it go away for him, thanks to a reasonable explanation and a paper trail.
In Connecticut, the law is you cannot write a check on money that you do not currently have in the bank account that the check is going to be drawn on. If you have written a check on money that you don’t have, but you have proof that you did not intend to commit a crime, then you have a fighting chance in court. Whatever the scenario, you need to hire a lawyer.
