    The state decides whether to prosecute, not you. Therefore, if you change your story, the state can still go ahead with the prosecution. If you are called as a witness and deny anything happened, the statements you originally made to the police can be introduced as evidence. If you admit making a false complaint to the police, you could be prosecuted for that, but you would probably not get jail time for it.
