Yes. Both are presumed to be in possession. The statement is only evidence that can be used to defend your position. It is not sufficient to prove that you lacked possession.

A co-defendant's statement exonerating another person does not mean the other person cannot be convicted too. I suggest the person hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
