They can certainly try but that doesn't mean they will be successful. I would suggest contacting a criminal defense attorney to discuss in more detail. You will need them if you want any hope of getting charges dismissed. Good luck.

The facts you mentioned make the prosecution's case sound weak, but they will likely think otherwise. Keeping something totally off your record is best handled by a skilled defense attorney to make sure everything is done right.
Your best bet at getting the charges dropped is to retain an attorney to fight for you. It sounds like a weak case against you. You certainly want to fight this, and remember that the prosecution carries a high burden which they must meet before you can be found guilty.
I wish you the best of luck.
