Douglasville, GA asked in Criminal Law for Georgia

Q: If there are mistakes in the paperwork & in the discovery packet in my criminal case, could that be cause for dismissal?

There are multiple issues with my paperwork... Starting from the time I was arrested, warrant that was filed (while I was in custody), and officers' statement. Also, there is another defendant's evidence report in my discovery packet, even though I do not have any co-defendants.
