As your Prosecuting Attorney, I'm always concerned about the negative impact of bad checks passed to local businesses. Millions of dollars are lost every year by merchants as a result of this ongoing problem. Bad checks affect everyone in terms of higher consumer costs that must be passed on to offset losses, and increased taxes to cover the additional costs for law enforcement and prosecution.
The Ingham County Prosecutor's Office contracts with the Eaton County Prosecutor, so that bad checks from each of these two counties can be handled by the Eaton County Prosecutor's Economic Crimes Unit.
This program has an office that is conveniently located in the Lansing Mall (5330 W. Saginaw Hwy., Lansing, MI 48917). It is directed by Eaton County Assistant Prosecutor Sharon Park. They can be contacted at (517) 543-4647, fax (517) 543-4863, or firstname.lastname@example.org
