Yes , I filed the report but no longer want to testify against the defendant . The state took over this case as The Common Wealth vs Defendant . I was told I could offer a plea bargain of having the assault case waived and Defendant plead guilty of abduction . What are the reprecussions of pleading the Fifth Amendment ?
Why can't I plead the Fifth? What can I do if I don't want to press these charges anymore? What is the maximum time for Strangulation & Abduction?
The right to invoke the Fifth Amendment is dependent upon the testimony incriminating the person testifying. Unless you lied in your report, there does not seem to be a basis for your invoking the privilege.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
