I owe someone money for a personal loan and wrote him 2 checks that I post dated but did not put in writing post date on check but he knew. Anyhow the day he was to cash them I called him and told him not too cash them he did anyways and is threatening me with prosecution if I do not pay him but we have made payment arrangements since and he has accepted payments can he press charges on me still? It has been around 2 years
"pressing charges" is not something an individual can do himself. The state / city / county can press charged. If he takes the facts to the prosecutor, you COULD be charged with a crime, if one has been committed. Separately he could sue you civilly. There are not enough facts here to give you any other perspective. You could be sued and you could be charged.
