You can be held in contempt of court and potentially jailed. You should at least talk with an attorney before making a decision on this serious matter. An attorney for you may also be able to convince/explain why it would be a bad idea for you to testify.
I agree that the judge could choose to hold you in contempt of court and lock you up.
The opinion that I express should not be considered to be legal advice that can be relied on. It is based only on the limited amount of information provided rather than doing a thorough review of all of the important information that is required to give accurate legal advice. You should consult with an attorney that has extensive background in the area of the law that your are inquiring about.
