Amnesty offered for bad check writers

October 15, 2009 7:21:12 AM PDT
Hundreds of bad check writers in Harris County are getting an opportunity for a clean slate. The district attorney announced an amnesty program for hot check writers that will be in effect for the rest of October. Offenders can make good on their bad checks and avoid criminal charges. The amnesty will be followed with a warrant sweep.

A similar amnesty program was held last July.

For inquiries about how to make restitution, and other program details, contact the District Attorney's Check Fraud Division at 713-755-7884.
