Any disposition of the case will include a request by this office for restitution for all losses as provided by law. This office cannot guarantee payment of that restitution.

In certain instances you may wish to proceed civilly, see section 68.065 Florida Statute. In a civil action the maker of the check could be liable for triple the amount of the check, plus collection fees.

If the maker of the check offers restitution, do not agree to drop the charges. The state may still pursue prosecution even if restitution is paid in part or in full.
