Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Ok, then contact them and tell them your fears. They can go from there. You have a legal obligation to testify. Just because you have been requested to testify that does not mean you will. But if your concerned about this then contact the DA and discuss these concerns. They can then assist you. You can also refuse to testify but this could bring a court ruling from the Judge for being in contempt of court. Best thing here is to contact the DA direct and speak with them.
