He's not wrongfully accused. If he made an additional unauthorized charge to the account/credit the "friend" who now I presume is the "enemy" has every right to be concerned and file charges against your untrustworthy "boy" friend. As you yourself admitted your "boy" friend made an additional $100 charge to the account without the "friends" authorization, your "boy" friend should at least pay the original card owner in full, otherwise he may face serious charges. What a despicable act on the part of your "boy" friend, what he did can be considered stealing, and in actuality is.
The friend should refute both charges as the original agreement has been violated and is no longer valid. Best to settle this out of court and have your "boy" friend pay the lender in full as soon as possible. To answer your last question yes he has a legal standing.
Another thing I want to add just because the friend original authorized for the use of $120 on his account doesn't mean he gives continous authorization for future charges without his consent which according to you he didn't.
