You are certainly able to testify as a witness when he has his trial.This may make a conviction very hard here if you claim you hit him first and it was self defense.You would help his case no doubt.It is in your interest to go and give such testimony.Hopefully it will be enough here to either dismiss charges of ind him innocent.Either way he would be innocent or this would mitigate matters.

I hope you will go and offer to testify about the situation as if your right here to do so.

I appreciate the chance to help you and wish you the best.

Thanks again and thanks for rating 5 stars.
