What is the bad check program?

The Defendant (check-writer) has an opportunity to have their criminal charges dismissed at their costs after they pay the total balance of all checks and fees turned over to Diversion Services and complete the class successfully. If the requirements are completed prior to the Defendant's next court date, the Defendant may bring their class certificate and receipt for payment in full to our office with court costs and we will provide the Defendant with a dismissal form to file with the Clerk of the County Court. Please note that the court case is not over until the Defendant's case is officially dismissed.
