Larceny by Check

Larceny by check is a crime under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 266 Section 37. It is essentially the crime of knowingly writing a bad check to obtain property or services. There are four elements that the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt to convict a person of larceny by check. First, it must be proven that the defendant wrote a check or cashed, passed, or delivered a check drawn. Next, the government has to prove that the defendant obtained property, money or services by using the bad check. Thirdly, it must be proven that the defendant knew that the funds were insufficient or that credit wouldn’t cover it. Finally, the government has to prove that the defendant had the intent to defraud. Failure to make good on a check within 2 days after notification that the check bounced may give rise to inferences of both intent to defraud and knowledge.
