You are a witness
You are the witness to what happened to you. You will have to “testify” (tell your story) in the trial. This means you will see the accused in the court. Whether or not you want to testify, you may receive a ‘subpoena’. This means you must go to court to testify. Be honest. Never lie. If you don’t remember something, say so In court, you will be asked about the statement you signed with the police. During the trial, you will be cross-examined on what you say by the accuser.
