It is the Crown Prosecution Service that would withdraw the charges. You can either withdraw the allegation or refuse to give evidence but if he has admitted the charge of rape they can proceed without you.
If you withdraw the charge you risk being charged with wasting police time depending on the view the police take of your reasons for alleging rape.
