What you do now is, hire a good lawyer.  One place to find qualified criminal defense counsel is our website, http://attorneypages.com

There are obviously a lot of details to this story, much more than you could fit into a question like this, and probably things you were smart not to post on the internet.  Your lawyer will need to know all the details, because something you might not even think was important could turn the whole case around.  That's part of what you're paying for!

I'm not sure you'll be able to have this dismissed, or that you could be acquitted at trial if it comes to that.  But I am sure that you are far and away going to be better off with a lawyer.
