Yes, it's possible that if you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you, that attorney could negotiate a plea bargain deal to get your "Trespassing" charge dismissed or reduced to a less serious offense, such as "Littering."
I received a speeding ticket (my first in 10+ years). The ticket says it's for "SPEEDING 36-40 MPH OVER" but below that it says driving 90, posted speed limit 60.... which is 30... not 36-40. Ninety in a sixty is consistent with what the officer stated/alleged.
Any error on the ticket can be corrected at any time. This does not sound like an error. This appears to be a situation in which the police officer wants the Prosecutor to know you were speeding 36-40 miles over but the cop gave you a break by issuing the ticket for only 30 miles over.

It sounds like your husband received a summons from the court notifying him that the Prosecutor has charged him with committing an offense. It's most likely just a minor traffic violation or parking ticket, since it states that he doesn't have to appear in court.
A cop showed up at my residence asking for me and if I was driving that day then said he saw me earlier that day. He sidetationed me for suspended licens is that legal if I wasn’t even in the vehicle at the time?
Yes, the police officer can give you a ticket for driving while suspended if he saw you driving and your license was suspended at the time. The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident (for misdemeanors) to decide to file charges against you.
If you were charged with possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana, then there is no possibility of jail time.
