A: Yes, he can be convicted if the evidence shows that he knew he was helping his friend with the drug deal. Maybe his friend throws him under the bus. Maybe there is something in his background that the prosecutor uses. Maybe he said something to the police that can be twisted into an admission.

If he's in jail in a drug charge, he needs a lawyer asap.
