You can be charged with Receiving Stolen Property.
Ohio law defines Receiving Stolen Property as receiving, retaining, or disposing of property the person has reasonable cause to believe was obtained through commission of a theft offense. [Ohio Revised Code Section 2913.51]
Ohio law considers Passing Bad Checks a theft offense [Ohio Revised Code Section 2913.01 & 2913.11]
