While it is up to the DA, options are severely restricted, especially since the statue of limitations might have passed. So, there's that. There's also the fact that Will was a minor, so he'd have to be tried as a minor. That means, he'd have to be sentenced as a minor, and since EJ lived that would only be a couple of years at max, but if EJ is uncooperative - or even stands up for Will - parole is probably the most reasonable thing a prosecutor could expect. Will's lawyer could negotiate a parole deal, which EJ could endorse, in about an hour. I actually want that to happen, so this won't hang over Will's head.

Nick is going to use the fact that Will shot EJ against him, okay...
But... Sonny also knows about Gabi's mess, so WilSon vs Nabi?
But doesn't EJ already know this about Will? And hasn't he gotten past it? At any rate, EJ is desperate to get Sami, so he'll back Will up for Sami's sake. And like someone pointed out before. Will was a minor when all this happened. Nick and Gabi were legal adults when they committed their crimes. And Gabi can still be prosecuted for hers.
In the long run, Nick can pull all the shenanigans he wants, but he and Gabi will come up short (in the legal department) in the end. But I'm sure the show will drag this shiz out FOREVER. At this rate I want both Nick and Gabi in prison so Will and Sonny can have the baby.
Yes, EJ has known for years that Will shot him and seems to be very much over it. However, if Salem law is consistent with the real world in this scenario, it's not EJ's choice as to whether or not to go after Will for the crime. It's the police and the DA that will decide if there's enough evidence to arrest and charge him. Yes, it will be harder for them to make a case against Will if EJ is uncooperative, but they can still pursue the case.
Exactly. Will could still be in a big legal mess even if EJ doesn't want to press charges. Heck, in the twisted world of soap opera, I could see EJ appointing himself as Will's lawyer (to impress Sami, of course) to defeat attempted murder charges. I would actually find that kind of hilarious.
But if EJ lies to the DA and says it is Lucas, I can't see any DA taking it forward. Nick's leverage is very flimsy. Also, Lucas could sue for wrongful imprisonment (even though he confessed, he still could) and the DA wouldn't want that either.
Gabi is in a lot more legal trouble.
