Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
In Maryland this charge is Section 14-107 of the Maryland Code. It carries a maximum possible penalty of two months of jail and a fine of $500. Jail is almost entirely unlikely.
You should have a lawyer with you on your court date. He may be able to get this matter dismissed or resolve it in some way favorable to you so that it won't hurt your record such as a PBJ.
