No, the retirement will have no effect on your case.
I agree with Mr. Roach. Another D.A. will take over your case after this one retires. There might be some delays as a result, but the case will not be dismissed. It also will not be rushed into trial. Your shot at a good plea bargain might be slightly higher while she can still wrap up the case herself, but probably not by much.
