I lived in a apartment building under a guy where him and his family stomps on my ceiling constantly. We had off and on confict and we both complained to the owner and the police. One day I took them a bottle of alcohol for a peace offering, things were fine for a few hours then the guy nephew was screaming by my window. I went outside and told him about the peace offering he said he didn't care then punched me, we started to fight then after the fight he tried to run me over with his car and then drove off. I suffered a concussion and had a big gash on my head. A friend of mine seen my gash and went over there and started beating up the uncle and another neighbor while I was breaking it up and saying no. At civil court they admitted I never touched them. Then they changed their story.
You should definitely hire a criminal defensse attorney to represent you. If you cannot afford to pay for one, ask to have the public defender appointed the first time you go to court.
That's important information to share with your criminal defense attorney. Time to hire a good lawyer and defend the case in court. The prior testimony can be used to attack the witnesses credibility.

I there a question here? It sounds to me as if this case may well go to trial, and all of these facts and inconsistent statements will become part of it. Witnesses say different things at different times frequently. Your lawyer should know how to deal with these issues and raise the appropriate defenses.
