In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary

In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary confinement, he attempted to heat a bottle of water with a match and then flushed it in the toilet. He will be charged with (1) Arson, but level 1, 2, 3 or 4 is not known yet. He did not willfully try to burn down the building! He is also charged with (2)Possession of Contraband (matches) by Inmate and (3) Destroying Evidence. He wants to fight the charges because he did not willfully/intentionally attempt to start a fire for any malicious reason. Do you think he has a good case to take to trial? However, if he must plead guilty, are any of these charges a 50% crime? or 85% crime?
