First offense for Trespassing..

Newport News, VA |

I was asking by social services to have a employment verification signed by my former boss. My (ex) boss made a huge deal out of me showing up because she didn't want to sign them, I sat in the waiting room quiet the whole time waiting. She called the cops and had me escorted of the premises. She filled charges and now I am looking at a class 1 misdemeanor for trespassing. I have never been in trouble a day in my life, not even a speeding ticket. I have a court appointed attorney and am wondering if anyone would be able to guess the out come? Thank you
