A: The chances? Nobody can predict. It depends on the prosecutor, jurisdiction, facts, history etc. Ultimately, it's not up to you. Since the State is involved they have discretion to continue the case or not. They can even compel you to testify. You probably want to sit down and speak with an attorney.
