Can you include bounced checks in a bankruptcy with criminal charges pending on the checks?

You can and should include the bounced checks, but that will only take care of any civil liability.
If the criminal case results in a fine or jail sentence, the bankruptcy will have no effect on that. If the criminal court orders restitution, chances are the bankruptcy will not affect that either, but some states have different rules.
