your District Attorney, I'm always concerned about the negative
impact of bad checks passed to local businesses. Millions of dollars
are lost every year by merchants as a result of this ongoing problem.
Bad checks affect everyone in terms of higher consumer costs that
must be passed on to offset losses, and increased taxes to cover
the additional costs for law enforcement and prosecution.
an effort to combat this problem, I have organized the Bad Check
Restitution Program to assist local merchants with bad check losses.
The primary goal of the program is to obtain full restitution for
the victim without adding to the financial burden of the criminal
bad check offenders are given the opportunity to avoid criminal
prosecution by attending a mandatory intervention class, in addition
to paying restitution. All of this is accomplished without any cost
to the taxpayers.
and participation in this special program will benefit all law-abiding
citizens and help your business improve its bottom line!
