What my rights are here and what do I have going in my plea MY GIrlfriend Is coming to stand with me in court to fight with me to get the dismissed.

Basically you are going to have to attend Court on the date mentioned in the summons. You should plead not guilty, and a trial date will be set. A week or two after that the police prosecutor will contact your girlfriend and if she still refuses to cooperate with them, then they are likely to simply dismiss the case.

Unfortunately until that time comes, you still have to go through all the hassle of attending Court.

Should you have any other questions, please let me know.
