I have a need to prompt a user for confirmation when changing a radio button.  The problem is that when the user clicks "Cancel" on the prompt, the radio button is still changed instead of the original radio button remaining selected.  Here's my code:
-----------------------------------------------------
function removeAccess() {
     var form = document.agency;
     var accept = confirm("Are you sure you want to remove this user's access?");
     if (accept){
          form.scout_access[0].checked=true;
          form.scout_pi[0].checked=true;
          form.update_scout.value = 'remove';
          scout_messages.innerHTML="<span class='error'>Access will be removed when you click save</span>";
          document.getElementById("saveReminder").style.display = "inline";
     }
     else {
          form.update_scout.value = '0';
          // THIS IS WHAT'S NOT WORKING
          form.scout_access[1].checked=true;
     }
}

<form name="agency" action="..." method="post">
<input type="radio" name="scout_access" value="0" onclick="removeAccess();">
<input type="radio" name="scout_access" value="1" checked="checked">
</form>
-----------------------------------------------------

Everything works fine except for changing the radio button back.  Any suggestions?

sorry I meant

function removeAccess() {
     var form = document.agency;
     var accept = confirm("Are you sure you want to remove this user's access?");
     if (accept){
          form.scout_access[0].checked=true;
          form.scout_pi[0].checked=true;
          form.update_scout.value = 'remove';
          scout_messages.innerHTML="<span class='error'>Access will be removed when you click save</span>";
          document.getElementById("saveReminder").style.display = "inline";
     }
     else {
          form.update_scout.value = '0';
          // THIS IS WHAT'S NOT WORKING
          form.scout_access[1].checked=true;
     }
return accept
}

<form name="agency" action="..." method="post">
<input type="radio" name="scout_access" value="0" onclick="this.checked=removeAccess();">
<input type="radio" name="scout_access" value="1" checked="checked">
