I would need to know more facts before giving a sound answer. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the transaction, your friend could be entitled to an entrapment defense.
Your friend should consult a criminal defense attorney right away, and definitely before he appears in court and talks with a prosecutor, so he can get a better idea of what defenses might be available.
The answer would require a review of the case to determine whether or not the informant was reliable and whether there may have been entrapment or other defense oriented issues.

Possibly, but if I had such a case I would want to look at everything.
