The consequences depend on how the case is charged. If you have been charged with check fraud you should seek out legal counsel in your area to assist you. Good luck.

It depends on the amount, and the specific statute they're charged under. (one statute has a 14 year penalty, others have less)
If the person has no record, probably probation of some sort.
As the other lawyers who answered your question indicated, the consequences depend not he individual facts and circumstances of the offense and the background of the alleged offender. If you or someone you know have been charged with or accused of check fraud, it is critical that he or she consult with an experienced, 10.0 Rated, criminal defense attorney in Michigan.
