Nevada Bad Check Laws
When a person writes a check and knows that there are not sufficient funds to cover that check, it is a criminal offense. The severity of the punishment depends on the amount of the check and the circumstances of the crime.
In Nevada, casino marker default is also considered writing a bad check. If you have received a notice from the District Attorney’s office for any of these offenses, it is important to contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
