My friends and I climbed an old fort to take pictures for my photography course in college, and a police officer told us to come down, and we got charged with a Class B Misdemeanor for Criminal Trespassing. He said that at the arraignment, we might be able to get it down to just a violation. No damage was done to the property, and we exited as soon as the officer told us to get off. None of us have had a criminal background. And since it's a Class B Misdemeanor, he said we're not allowed to get lawyers.
1) How should we plead in the court? Is there even a point to trying to plead not guilty, or should we fess up that we did indeed trespass the property?
2) What do you think will be the consequences? Fines estimate? Community service? Jail time?
3) What comes after an arraignment?
