so i have given a statement and my statement was used by a defendant charged with murder. i said in my statement that i did not see him do the crime. i did not say though that i know that he did it because he told me. i also lied in my statement in regards to what really happened. the purpose is to defend the accused. the case is still in the fiscal's office. now i want to correct my statement. will i be in trouble? i know yes but how deep? thank you in advance.

It is perjury to lie under oath, on a material matter.

Retract your statement. You might be found out during cross examination that you lied, and by then it might be too late for you to escape liability for your lying.

Hire a lawyer for your protection and go to the Prosecutor's Office
