If your question is whether a prosecutor may dismiss then re-file a criminal charge, the answer is yes. It sounds as though the prosecutor may have just been correcting whatever potential procedural defect you identified in your motion to dismiss.
Based upon your description of the facts of your case, this is something that is too complex to be answered on a message board. There are many factors that an attorney would have to determine before an opinion could be given on the matter. My advice would be to hire a criminal defense attorney to examine the prosecutor's new charging statement.
