Passing muktiple checkbox value to sub-task

Sorry for mi english, hope you understand me.
I have to transfer a value from a custom field (multiselect checkbox) to a sub-task.
Here is my code.

OptionsManager optionsManager = (OptionsManager)ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(OptionsManager.class);
valueOptionCheck = optionsManager.findByOptionId(new Long(13628));
cfCustomFieldCheck = cfCustomFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(13619);
newIssue.setCustomFieldValue(cfCustomFieldCheck , valueOptionCheck);

But, when i set the values, throws a null in the log that i have
null error throws in the line newIssue.setCustomFieldValue(cfCustomFieldCheck , valueOptionCheck);
Hope you can help

(the checkbox has only two values, yes or no)
