I would recommend your husband hiring an attorney. You can attempt to have the charges dropped but the state can proceed without your consent. They can subpeona you to court and force you to testify. Making an affidavit probably didn't help your efforts in getting the case dismissed, but you have an absolute right to make one though. In cases such as these, an attorney with the knowledge on how to deal with these cases is very important.
You cannot force the State to drop the charges. Your husband can take the case to trial, and when called to the stand you can 'plead the fifth' and refuse to testify on that basis. The Judge can hold you in contempt for that, however, and you could go to jail for that. Your husband needs an attorney and you do as well.
If you plan on going and telling the police or prosecutor that you lied, you could face charges yourself.

Dropping the charges is a decision for the state, not the victim. He should hire an attorney. He would then be able to show what happenned and what he has done since then to address some issues he may have been going through.
