Yes, you can be charged even after someone else says that the drugs are his and not yours. Just because your co-defendant is willing to take the weight of the offense doesn't mean that the DA believes him. It also doesn't mean that the two of you couldn't have been planning on sharing the drugs you possessed.

If you're indigent, the lawyer shouldn't be charging you, let alone trying to get $40,000 from you. You might want to ask the judge to appoint you another public defender as you think this one is trying to cheat you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
