I'm not aware of any law that would be violated by her depositing payroll checks which were later returned. She will be civilly liable for the amount of the checks but not criminally.
Did the bank say what type of charges they were trying to get filed?
She probably needs to go ahead and retain a local attorney to see if they can head this off because there shouldn't be any charges filed against her but the bank could not reveal all the information in an attempt to get her charged. She probably could even pursue her lawyers fees against the bank.
You are very welcome.
