Approximately 95% of cases end up with a plea bargain, so you may not have to testify. What plea bargain they offer the accused depends on his prior criminal record, the strength of the evidence against him and to some extent your interest in the prosecution.

The person will end up either taking a deal or going to trial. The sentence would depend on the person's prior record and all the facts in the case and could range from probation to prison.
