These are typically charged [as in an emotional sense] and political, at least here in CA.
Ergo, likelihood of a dismissal is small. DO NOT CALL DA. Hire counsel.

It's impossible to predict the outcome of a case, especially not knowing all the facts. You are going to have to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area to review everything and determine your best defenses. If you cannot afford an attorney, ask the court to appoint one for you. Do not make any statements about the case to anyone other than your attorney.

Agree with above answers. The only chance you have to get it dismissed before the court date is to hire an attorney, compile all the mitigating evidence you have mentioned, and get him or her to talk to the prosecutor.

The PA is unlikely to voluntarily dismiss the case. You may, however, be eligible for diversion or found not guilty at trial. If you haven't already I would highly suggest discussing the issue personally with an attorney to flesh out your options and figure out how you need to proceed.
