    "Obt property return for w/l check" Whats it stand for?

    So I'm looking through my county's jailing records and a relative of mine happens to be in for
    "OBT PROPERTY RETURN FOR W/L CHECK" with a misdemenor charge for it. I was just wondering what the hell that stands for.

    Just a guess, but "white trash"?

    nah, I'd categorize my dad as "Peanut-Butter Brown" to the "Black" range. No where near as dark as lets say Mr. Snipes though.

    That charge btw, I think, is one of two things.

    Either Theft by Deception, which means he wrote a cold check, or he stole a checkbook and tried to cash in with the stolen checkbook.

    Absolutely could be wrong though.

    ROFL. That reminds me of Charlie Murphy saying he and Eddie were the "blackest niggas" on the planet before "Willie Snips" got famous. Don't fret, I have black trash in my family if that means anything.


    The latter seems to be terminology for "writing bad checks."

    My guess would be "With intent". Just a hunch.

    Only problem is that intent doesn't start with an "l" I should have capitalized it though "W/L"

    Warrant / law violations check?

    It's a discredit to the legal system that most references someone would use to check and understand their own criminal record are either dead pages, missing URLs, or lack database support. Bleh...

    Your Sheriff's office would prolly know what it means, if you're interested in taking it that far.

    That sounds about right, seeing as how the nature of the charge is passing bad checks and getting property under false pretenses. I was going to suggest calling the Clerk of courts, they can tell you any and all abbreviations on the spot.

    But Groove seems to have solved his quandary. Sherlock Holmes I am not, obviously.

    Wouldn't passing bad checks be a felony over a misdemenor? I've never been arrested though so I wouldn't know much about it.

    Edit: in regards tio a felony over misdemeanor.
