If the charge is dismissed there is no charge to reduce.
will i have to reopen the case? and then try to get it reduced or is it not even possible to reopen it?
When a charge is dismissed, you have essentially been found "not guilty" of the crime or action. Thus, there is no need to pursue a reduced charge unless your desire is to expunge the record of the information. Even in that case, I doubt that would be the outcome for another record would be created in light of the reduce charge leaving the previous to stand in the public record chronology. For example, let's say you were charged with "Murder" then the charge was dismissed. There would be a court record stating that charge. You are innocent of the crime so the fact that there is a record of the charge only has value as a historical document in the court. WB
