    A friend of mine was in a holding cell and whilst in there was charged with possession of a small quantity of illicit substances and drugs. Whilst in the cell the police had watched him on the camera allegedly attempt to discard said substances but despite the footage, there was no conclusive evidence/ clear footage that he had actually discarded the substance. Just some movement in the vicinity of where the substance was found a short time later.

    Should he just accept the charge or would it just make his situation worse if he disputes it?

    He is unsure whether the evidence underwent DNA analysis or fingerprinting and there were no tests performed on him.

    Thank you in advance

    He should not admit anything until he has spoken with a lawyer who can obtain full details of the charge and evidence. Sorry can't be more helpful than than.
