Aiken, SC 29801
The Worthless Check Unit operates within the Office of Solicitor to provide for the collection and distribution of restitution to the victims of worthless checks.
The Program transfers the collection process from the victim to the Solicitor's Office, reducing the victim's work and cost associated with collections. The traditional prosecution of worthless checks is still the law.
Participation by a victim in the Worthless Check Program is optional.
The Worthless Check Program is self-sustaining under the control and supervision of Solicitor Thurmond's Office and is supported through cooperation of the judicial, law enforcement, and community service agencies. Operational costs are recovered from the offenders.
The establishment of a Worthless Check Unit within Solicitor Thurmond's Office has been authorized by the Legislature in R.294, H.4800, Proviso 46.6 of Act 310 of 2008 and is in partnership with the county governing body.
