Regarding written testimony

Scenario: We have two friends! Something happens between them, one attacks the other (unprovoked, premeditated), and the victim ends up in a coma for nine months (attacker thought victim was dead and went into hiding). One year later, attacker is finally arrested, trial will be held, all that good stuff. (None of this can be changed, as it has already happened.)

Victim will be too upset over the entire ordeal to give coherant testimony verbally, but is very good at collecting him/her/somethingself on paper. What are the conditions for accepting a written testimony?

Also, what is the likely length of sentence for the attacker? I had thought five to ten, but I am no lawyer!
