You need to see an attorney in person on this one, and have him with you in court. Probably not a good idea to admit to the prosecutor that you made things up, because you'll end up with a charge yourself. You may be able to plead the 5th amendment when asked to testify against your boyfriend, and then the prosecutor may well lack any evidence to convict him. But be sure to have your own lawyer there, for some J & D judges will try and intimidate you into testifying, anyway, and you would then be between the proverbial rock and a hard place.
