    Sure, you can deny, deny, deny.
    That, however, can cause other legal issues for you; as in fraud, criminal conspiracy, or perjury.

    I suggest you discuss the ramifications with a couple defense lawyers.
    The first visit won't cost you anything but 15-20 minutes.

    Agree, you might want to talk to a lawyer before you recant any statement.

    Bad idea. You can potentially be subpoenaed, compelled to testify, held in contempt of court if you don't, and prosecuted for perjury if you change your story.
