Hire him a lawyer. And, he should NOT plead guilty to something he did not do - especially a felony offense! There have been others who have confessed and were not guilty. A lawyer may be able to help him. I'm sure there were witnesses who know that he loaned his gloves; there may be pawned items; etc.
