The DA can choose to not prosecute it, but I see no legal reason for it to be dismissed. If the DA pursues it, it will likely go to trial. It might be that the DA will agree to a plea deal to something a little less harsh-sounding such as a disturbing the peace charge per PC 415.

Grandpa may want to consult an attorney. And, he may want to reconsider such long walks.
If convicted, I believe the penalties would be up to 6 months in jail and/or up to a $1,000 fine. Chances are a small fine, probation and community service might be the end result. But, an attorney might be able to get a better deal. And, it is possible that the DA may decide to drop the matter.
How much is he going to have to pay? does he have to do community service???
A consultation with an attorney would be highly advisable.
