A: a lawyer needs more info?

any prior record?

how much was the return?

do they have an idea how often she has done this and the total amount?

if this is the only time they know about she can argue it was a spur of the moment impulse but if they are aware of other events it shows premeditation/intent and planning to commit the crime.
