SHOULD I TESTIFY AGAINST MY FRIEND'S EX-BOYFRIEND?

Dear Willie D:

I've been getting to know this woman, but haven't crossed the line intimately. I was over at her place and her child's father (they aren't together) came over and started some mess. She and I stood up for each other and he left only to call the cops. I ended up being told that I have a court date in which I was a circumstantial witness to a domestic dispute.

I was told by her lawyer to take the stand against this guy on behalf of this woman and all domestically abused women. I understand that it happens the other way around too. But now I'm in a situation where my life is at risk in the coming years for a woman who isn't even 100 percent sure about her commitment to me.

If I testify against him people will say, "Oh, he's a snitch." If I don't testify on my friend's behalf she'll never forgive me for not standing up for her. That'll eat me alive from within. What a tangled web we weave. What should I do?
