9.70.010 Unlawful issuance of checks or drafts.

A. Any person who shall, with intent to defraud, make or draw or utter or deliver to another person any check or draft on a bank or other depository for the payment of money, knowing at the time of such drawing or delivery that he has not sufficient funds in or credit with said bank or other depository to meet said check or draft, in full, upon its presentation shall be guilty of unlawful issuance of bank check. The word “credit” as used in this section shall mean an arrangement or understanding with the bank or other depository for the payment of such check or draft and the uttering or delivery of such check or draft to another person without such fund or credit to meet the same shall be prima facie evidence of an intent to defraud.

B. Any person who shall, with intent to defraud, make or draw or utter or deliver to another person any check or draft on a bank or other depository for the payment of money, and who issues a stop-payment order directing the bank or depository on which the check is drawn not to honor said check, and who fails to make payment of money in the amount of the check or draft or otherwise arrange a settlement agreed upon by the holder of the check within 20 days of issuing said check or draft, shall be guilty of unlawful issuance of bank check.

C. Unlawful issuance of a bank check in an amount of $250.00 or less is a misdemeanor. [Ord. 1519 § 1, 1985; Ord. 1235 § 3, 1979: RCW 9A.56.060.]

In any case where an accused has been convicted of the below-listed offenses, there shall be, in addition to any fine levied, a penalty in the amount of $50.00, which shall be nonsuspendable, which shall be paid to the Police Department Crime Prevention Fund. The fact that this penalty is imposed on each case shall not in any way reduce the obligation of the accused to pay the fine prescribed by the court:
