It's a classic he said/he said so it will come down to credibility. If you have an attorney, take a meeting to go over these issues. If you don't, get one soon!
I am a criminal defense attorney practicing in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City. The above information is not a substitution for a meeting whereas all potential legal issues can be discussed.

If you found this "helpful" or "best answer," please click it with my appreciation. My response is for educational purposes and does not constitute legal advice nor creates an attorney client relationship which requires all the details and a personal conference.
I handle these cases statewide, feel free to look at my Avvo profile and reviews. I offer a free consultation. I would look for witnesses surveillance video, and look at the criminal history of the witnesses.
