Thank you for your question.
Criminal charges on bad checks for $500 or less must be brought within one year of the day the check is passed. Checks over $500 but less than $1000 must be prosecuted within two years. For larger checks the time grows longer still; but it is strongly encouraged that bad checks of such magnitude be brought to the attention of the police as soon as the violation is apparent, rather than waiting.
