curse and abuse

i returned a call to an aquaintance one night, the confo turned ugly, and the party hung up on me. i called back and got the answering machine uppon which i left a message. bad language was used, but no personal threats were made. i did advise her that i was going to report her for food stamp fraud. next day, she calls my mother, cursed and then hung up on her. later that night i recieve a warrant for curse and abuse charge, class 1 misdemeanor, by use of telephone. i waived my right to an attorney not understanding a class 1 misdemeanor. court is tomorrow, do i stand a chance defending myself? my mother is going to testify about the call she received the next morning, but she did not tape her call
