Will the court check the passport for overstayed visa? and do they have the power to deport?
A criminal court (as it sounds like you are referring to) does not check the passport of a witness, nor does a criminal court deport people. They could only report you to Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE).
However, you may want to talk to an attorney about your case because victims of certain crimes who are helpful to the prosecution (by, for example, appearing in court and testifying on the case) are eligible for immigration benefits through a U-visa.
