You know someone who worked at a check cashing store in California he allowed someone to cash a check 12000 and that person went and removed funds from the account NSF can he get in trouble for that?

If your "friend" (it's you, we know it, we're not judging) was following company policy in cashing that check, he shouldn't be in trouble; as long as he did all the steps required by the company, he's not responsible for what happens next since the owner/manager sets policy based on what they consider to be acceptable risk.

If he wasn't following company policy, then he can (and should) "get in trouble"; if he's lucky, he'll probably just get fired.
