    Answered . Your friend needs an attorney. Typically in Tarrant County, the DA is reasonably willing to listen to a fact scenario like you're describing, particularly if the driver of the car is truly willing to admit the contraband belonged to her. But your friend needs someone to go speak with the prosecutors on her behalf. At the end of the day, the State has to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that your friend possessed the substance. My job as an attorney is to do everything legally possible to keep the State from doing that.
