    Default Unknowingly Caught Up In Check Fraud, What Are Potential Charges?

    My sons friend asked him if he would cash a check at his bank in New York as she had no account or ID. She said a friend gave her the check. He agreed to do it & went to the bank, cashed it & gave her the money. Today he was contacted by an investigator that the check was stolen. They have my son on tape at the bank & his signature under who ever signed the check. They said they had enough to arrest him but didn't tell him what charges. He explained to the investagator how he got involved with this check & gave the friends name & phone number. She has now moved to another part of New York. Now they need him to go down & write a statement. What could he be faced with?

    Thank you for your response. I called an attorney today. He said he is facing felony charges for this. He said he could face more felony charges if he can not prove this other girl is the one who stole the check & not him. If he can prove that, then he is still facing a felony charge for cashing the check. What we don't know is what could be the sentence for the felony charge of cashing the check or the 2 felony charges for "stealing" the check & cashing it. I just hope they do find out he did not steal it.
