Restitution
When you file a Theft by Check complaint with the County Attorney's Office, you are alleging a person committed a criminal offense. If your case goes to court, and the check writer is found guilty, the Judge will usually order the check writer to make restitution to you. Section 3.506, Texas Business and Commerce Code, states that you may add a processing fee of up to $30.00 to the amount of a dishonored check that you are attempting to collect. This fee plus the amount of the check is the total amount of your restitution. The function of the County Attorney's Office is to prosecute persons who have violated the law. Recovery of stolen property and collection of restitution is a major goal of this office. However, there may be times when restitution cannot be collected from the check writer and they are sentenced to jail.
