You'll need to hire a defense attorney ASAP to determine your best defense. It sounds like there will be something to work with on your case, but no one could give you a good assessment of your case without first hearing your story and finding out what's in the discovery.

It's important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible, so that you can begin planning your defense and making sure your rights are protected. I'd be happy to talk with you about your case, if you want to give me a call.
