It depends on what statute you were specifically charged with (basically, where were you accused of trespassing on to?)  The most common statute is 18.2-119, which is trespass after having forbidden to do so.  This is a Class 1 Misdemeanor, punishable by up to 1 year in jail, a $2500 fine, or both.  Consult an attorney for defenses, especially since this is a jailable offense.
