MCD Trespassing question

Recently, a few friends went and explored Michigan Central Depot (http://www.forgottendetroit.com/mcs/index.html) and were given misdemeanor trespassing tickets when they exited. The police officer who ticketed them watched them enter, saw them through the windows on different levels of the building, and waited around for three hours for them to come out.

They seem to think that this ticket will be either dismissed or lowered to loitering. Does anyone have any experience with being ticketed at this location, or other locations around Detroit? Anyone know what to expect as far as fines go?
