Can charges still be pressed 7 months after restitution has been made?

Question Details: I keyed a car 7 months ago. The lady filed a police report, I spoke to her, admitted to her and the cops I did it and promised to pay for the damages within a week, approximately $1000. I paid her back within the timeframe. I kept the cop updated and had the body shop email the cop the receipt. I haven't heard from the cop or the lady since. Can she still press charges or is this now over? She did get a police report.
