What repercussions am I facing for lying about a domestic abuse charge?

I need to know what kind of problems I'm going to face in the near future as a result of a lie I told to the court, about my husband and a domestic abuse case. My husband and myself were in an argument about this or that and it escalated rather quickly. One thing led to another and the police were called on a "domestic abuse" call. My husband was taken into custody and a court hearing happened shortly after. The problem is, I lied, through the whole case, to get away from him. I told the judge in the trial that he was abusive, would hit me and the like. He was charged with 3 counts of domestic abuse and is now facing a rather hefty jail sentence. I never wanted him to go to jail, just get out of my life. If I come clean, what repercussions am I going to face for the lie?
