Hot Check Division

What are hot checks and how we can help

The Prosecuting Attorney’s office assists merchants with prosecution and collection of restitution due to hot checks.  Typically the following checks usually cannot be prosecuted as “hot” checks:

  • Post-dated checks
  • Stop-payment checks
  • Two-party checks
  • Checks which are more than a year old
  • Checks for which partial payment has been received
  • Checks given in exchange for a returned check
  • Checks which do not identify who accepted it
  • Checks received in the mail
  • Checks not presented to the bank within 30 days of issuance

If you have questions about hot checks or would like assistance to determine if our office can assist in prosecution of a hot check, please call (870) 246-9868.
