Th attorney you spoke with is correct you son confessed to having a gun. Your son should not confess to knowing the gun was stolen. Knowingly accepting stolen property can also lead to criminal charges. The best you can do is to hire a lawyer and try to plead the charge where your son only gets probation.
If your son is willing to turn on his friend that could also make a plea deal more attractive for the prosecutor. The State is highly interested in keeping guns off the street.
