MAN FACING CHECK FRAUD CHARGES ACCUSED OF WRITING 200-PLUS BAD CHECKS

Two-hundred sixty-six: That’s how many bad checks prosecutors say a local man wrote before charges got filed.

Timothy Andrews, 38, faced Judge Joanne Jannik today in one of the biggest cases of its kind in Tuscaloosa County history.

Court officials said it all started in 2001 when bad checks began flooding Tuscaloosa-area businesses, adding up to nearly $30,000.

Prosecutors said they want Andrews to go to jail for five years. The judge’s ruling is expected soon.
