Worthless Check Charges in Florida

In Florida, it is a criminal offense to knowingly give another person a worthless check as payment for goods or some service rendered. The same applies to stopping payment on a check for the purpose of committing fraud. These offenses may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the value of the check written. Generally speaking, a worthless check offense will be charged as a felony if it was valued at $150 or more.

Penalties for Worthless Checks in Florida

Following are the specific penalties which may be imposed upon a conviction for issuing a bad check or for stopping payment on a check in Florida:

  • Issuing a worthless check, valued at less than $150 - first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in county jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
  • Issuing a worthless check or stopping payment on a check for the purpose of committing fraud, valued at $150 or more - third degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in state prison and/or a fine of up to $5,000.
