What happens after criminal charges are filed?

After criminal charges are filed, a warrant may be issued for the check-writer's arrest. When the prosecutor files charges, they also determine whether or not the check-writer is eligible to have their charge(s) dismissed at the check-writer's cost upon successful completion of the bad check class and full payment of checks and fees.
