I'll look up whether this has the meaning that you think it does and get back to you later. If there is any case law, I'll bet it won't have to deal with the soccer mom paying for little Billy's ice cream!

Interesting, I thought that a bad check was considered a felony not an infraction. I guess if you never deal with it then it becomes a felony. Felony = more than one year in state prison misdemeanor/infraction = less than on year in county jail

Not that I think the Feds are going to enforce it. But, it is like when they say eventually they will make enough laws that we are all criminals.
