HOW THE WORTHLESS CHECK UNIT HELPS BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS
The Cost Recovery Unit handles cases turned over to our office by the District & Circuit Court. It was formed for the purpose of monitoring, tracking and collecting court ordered money owed by convicted offenders. These are cases where Court-ordered restitution, fines and or Court cost have not been paid by a defendant within a period of time ordered by the Court. Cases range from Felonies and Misdemeanors to Traffic Tickets.
The Cullman County Worthless Check Unit was implemented in 1987 in response to Alabama State Judicial Act #84-704, which provided for the creation of the Special Services Divisions in District Attorney's Offices statewide. Since that time, over $3,500,00 in restitution has been collected for victims in Cullman County.
