Another common scenario occurs where a check recipient agrees to accept a postdated check in exchange for goods or services, even though the maker of the check has informed the recipient that the checking account will not contain adequate funds to cover the check until the date used on the check. For example, at trial, a witness might recount a defendant’s statement made to the witness admitting that the defendant wrote the victim a worthless check in order to get the victim to provide the defendant something of value.Interracial marriage means marriage between individuals of different races, e.g. A particularly odious holdover from slavery and Jim Crow in the United States was the fact that marriage between whites and blacks was illegal in many states until such laws were struck down by the Supreme Court in 1967.As of 2008, 1 in 7 new marriages in the US are interracial.Although worthless check laws can vary somewhat from one state to another, all states make it illegal for a person to write a worthless check with the intent to defraud a person or business of goods or services. Typical worthless check laws are written so that the criminal intent requirement necessary for a conviction is satisfied if the prosecutor proves the existence of one or more conditions or facts specified by the statute. Punishment for committing check fraud, including fraud committed with a postdated check, can vary from state to state, but the laws typically authorize fines, probation, and even imprisonment.The maker of the postdated check must have the intent to defraud at the time of writing the postdated check. For example, under Georgia’s deposit account fraud statute, the defendant is presumed to have written the check with the knowledge it would bounce if: The fact that a postdated check is not honored because of insufficient funds does not, by itself, establish that the maker of the check committed a crime; the prosecutor must prove that the defendant had the intent to defraud at the time of writing the worthless check. A defendant also will have to make restitution to the victim for goods or services received with the bad check.
