Thank you for the information and your question. Although you have the right to go to the prosecutor who is assigned your BF's case and tell them that you would prefer that the charge not be pursued, you cannot control whether or not it is. In other words, crimes are considered "crimes against the State" even when there is a victim. So, it is the State that makes the prosecution decisions, which sometimes conflict with what the victim might want to see happen. That said, prosecutors do take something like the victim's wishes into account.
However, if you are subpoenaed as a witness you will have to show up to testify. You also must tell the truth, whatever that is. If you do not show up, then you could be cited for contempt of court
and then you would face a misdemeanor
If the prosecutor will not drop the case, then you might want to speak to your BF's attorney and tell them that you will testify on sentencing, if it comes to that, in favor of leniency.
Let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.

Please rate me based solely on my assistance to you in understanding the law, and not based on whether my answer is what you were hoping to hear. I, unfortunately, have no control over how the law impacts your particular situation, and I trust that you can understand how it would be unfair for me to be punished by a negative rating for having been honest with you about the law. Please reply to me and let me know if you are having difficulty with the rating system or even seeing it. Thank you.
