If a person has not been convicted of the prior crimes, then no, he can't be charged as a repeat offender. However, if the person has been convicted, even if that person believes he was wrongfully convicted, he can be charged as a repeat offender.

never been in trouble before this, can he still be charged with repeat offender if his LAWYER AGREED TO IT, AND MAY SAY HE AGREED TO IT ALSO ?

No. If haven't previously been convicted, it would be illegal to charge you as a repeat offender. The judge can't accept a plea that is based on untrue things (such as your prior offender status). You can back out of this plea if you want.
