My Pa colleagues are correct, You can be charged and under certain circumstances there may be a defense. I noticed that you are in Hatfield PA so I will assume that this happened in Montgomery County. You should contact an experienced lawyer in Montgomery County who knows the police, courts and District Attorneys. Do this asap. Time is always a factor. Most of us will speak with you at no charge for a first conference.See question
Someone was told not to do something on their college grounds out of concern for their safety by a public safety officer. Person did it again and was caught again. Person was then cited for criminal trespass. Is a defense even possible?

I never had any prior arrest nor any other crime What are the possibilities of the outcome ?
First, respond to the citation and plead NOT GUILTY. I believe the court is on Henderson Rd. Contact an experienced criminal lawyer who is familiar with the police and Court in King of Prussia. There may be ways to avoid a conviction for retail theft but only if you work with someone who has handled this type of situation before with success.See question
