That depends partly on what the check writer does afterwards. If they immediately pay back the person whose account they used without authorization, and promise never to do it again, they might be OK. If not, the person whose account they used might sue the check writer for the money back, and might file a police report for theft and/or forgery, and criminal charges are possible.
