Often people think that if they just return the item or money involved, that the criminal charges will be dismissed. This is not true and this could be used against you in court to show guilt. There are cases where the return of the stolen property can be helpful, but you should have legal representation before you attempt to do such a thing after you have been accused. In many cases the mere possession of the stolen property, without having actually taken it can be considered a crime.
