So last year my house was broken into and among other things they stole my kimber tle/rlII stainless (which was in my pistol safe lag bolted to the wall). a few months later they found the kimber and some of our other stuff among a bunch of other stolen stuff. the guy that had said stuff is being charged with theft by reception. So this is where it gets a little wierd. The guys attorney wrote me a letter asking me if they could compensate me for the theft and any wrong doing on her clients behalf. She claims in the letter that it is above board and welcomes me to speak with the district attorney about this matter. So my question is, Is this actually legal, and is there an amount of money that would make it worth not helping put this guy in jail?
