Trespass in Maryland is a misdemeanor. There are several different types, most punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to five hundred dollars.
There are various types of intoxication laws as well, so I cannot be specific, except that yours would probably relate to underage drinking, which could be seen as a crime of moral turpitude.

IYou will need to talk to a local immigration lawyer as quickly as you can manage it. If you were a US student with these charges and had no prior contact with the criminal justice system, you would probably be able to resolve this favorably in some way without necessarily even gettng a criminal record as a result.

However, you are not in the same position. Your ability to remain in the US may be compromised here by any plea you take, and your ability to leave the country and return while the case against you is pending is also something you need to be concerned about.
