I work for a company where I am a only a signer on checks. The company is an LLC and now is out of business. The check bounced and the company that the check was written to is coming after me.The constiable sent a little for me to show up in court but it was sent to the busniess and I had no clue that it was sent there. Now I have a warrant out for my arrest. My question is why am I responsiable for the check when I am not even the owner and I am just a signer. Please help.

You took on the responsibility of the worthiness of the check when you signed it. You represented to the company receiving the check that it was good by your signature. You are responsible. Hire a good lawyer who can help demonstrate to the prosecutor that you were left "holding the bag".
