bad check cannot be put on bankruptcy. your bank is the one you have to deal with directly about a bad check. the problem you run into with bad checks is two fold. first, if the bank has paid the check and your account is nsf, then you won't be able to declare bankruptcy and simple walk away. you will have to pay the negative balance and bring this to "zero" balance or you will not be able to open another checking account with any other bank. they have their own bank account history reporting system that is unrelated to the major credit bureaus. second, if the bank did not pay the check, the vendor is allowable under law to submit the check twice, send you notification of nsf, and then send the matter to the local authorities and they can begin a legal process by which they will place a warrant for your arrest and you will have to appear in court to defend yourself against "theft by check" charges. Make sure the bank paid the check first, very important, then pay the bank back so you can open another checking account.

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.
