The first thing to find out is, did he actually lie or is his simply changing his mind because he is worried that police are involved and is scared.
If he has lied to the police, yes they could charge him with wasting police time, but actually that does not happen that often. He may simply get a good telling off by the police.
As long as the police have not arrested the person accused or interviewed them them now is the best time to stop the matter and lies.
If he has lied, then he needs to tell the police.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
