Thank you for your question.

He will not go to jail if this was a first offence. He will likely be fined or the case will be deferred for good behaviour.

You should not retract your statement however as the court could consider this to be perjury and you could end up in court yourself. You can make it clear that the issues between you have been resolved and have been out behind you but you cannot tell lies about the incident.

Happy to discuss further.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
