    You are both liable for plagiarism. You'll be getting punished for giving away your work, he'll be done for copying someone's work

    Nice "friend" you have there, I'd be soon doing away with a "friend" like that. What on earth would possess you to lend your work to someone else anyway. If they can't do it themselves, that's their problem and not yours,

    Surely only the "friend" has done something wrong by copying your work? Showing your work to someone else is not a crime (just not very clever, if it's not someone you know and trust!).

    Edit: Meant to add that if your "friend" isn't admitting to plagiarizing your work, presumably you'll need to prove that it is your work and that your "friend" copied it without your consent. I'm not sure what sort of evidence you'll need. Has your "friend" owned up to plagiarizing your work?
