What types of penalties could I face from these two charges and the possible probation violation charge? My residence state is in Maryland.

I was in a driveway in a mobile home park in a stranger's driveway. I found out I was at wrong home when I was attempting to visit a friend. He lived 2-houses up. I knocked on front door & no one answered. I thought he was still at work. I decided to wait for him in car. I went to sleep & next thing I knew the Police was shining a light in my face. The ignition keys were not in the switch when they came. I was arrested & released the next morning on recognized bond.

I know all of you will tell me to get an attorney, but im looking for advice here. Thanks in advance
Yes, the law allows the Commonwealth and/or the police officer to amend the charge. They could also go with 18.2-272,...
