Loitering with an Intent

A month ago I was arrested in Paterson, NJ for ''loitering with an intent to purchase drugs''. I pleaded not guilty to the charge and have to appear in court tomorrow. I have never been in trouble before and was not there to purchase drugs, I was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people. I would just like to know what the maximum punishment could potentially be if the judge finds me guilty for some reason. I'm beginning to panic and would feel much better if I knew what the worst case scenario could be with this charge.
