Good morning. This is a crime against the State and they would represent your interest as the victim. They would need to gather evidence to show and prove beyond a reasonable doubt, that this person stole your information. This can be done through physical evidence and testimony, to link them to the theft. Screen shots, bank statements and anything relevant to the charge, would be needed. After all, if you never authorized your bank account to be used to pay for their phone bill, why/how did their bill get paid from your account. Unless the phone company said this was an error, they would have likely obtained it and used it and it can be traced back.
There is nothing for you to lose or be scared about. This is criminal and the State will act and represent your interest. Turn over the evidence and they can decide if there is enough to prosecute. Nothing to worry about.
