Can a hit and run be dismissed?

My girlfriend was just involved in a pretty nasty series of events and now she is facing a hit and run charge. Do these charges ever get dismissed? I know that they are pretty serious.

    While it is possible that any charges for any offense might be dismissed, that is not always likely. The prosecution has exclusive discretion whether to bring charges and whom to prosecute.

    If there was a personal injury it is a felony. If not it's a misdemeanor and a good lawyer can get it dismissed or reduced to a Disorderly Conduct.
