Many other factors must be considered to answer your question with an answer it deserves. Legal analysis is seldom a simply task. A detailed investigation of the case facts, an understanding of the applicable law, experience in the local court system are all necessary perquisites to the analysis.
PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS RESPONSE as the reason to say or do anything regarding your case or situation. This answer/response is based on the information provided in your inquiry and requires a much more complete context than is available in this public forum. BEFORE you say or do anything consult with an experienced local Federal and/or state criminal defense attorney in your jurisdiction who will listen to you and your concerns.
More information is needed. You are the only witness. If you testify that nothing happened or that any marks were not from assault it is tough for the state but the judge may not believe you. Who called the cops and why? . if you do not testiy at all it is even tougher but you could be held in contempt.
