I'm assuming the dent is still there. So they can go back and get a picture, and appraisal for repair, without your knowledge. It's a misdemeanor, not a traffic ticket. So the penalty is more than just a fine.

If she doesn't have emails or texts from you with false figures for rent, gas, electricity, water/sewage, car insurance, car note, then there is no fraud. If she doesn't have emails or text from you with a false figure for your child support, and willingly gifted you money to pay your child support, then there is no fraud. Print any texts or emails from her threatening to criminally charge you if you don't sign a promissory note and take that to the Sheriff's Office.
