Driving in California with an Out-of-state drivers license a criminal offense?

I was recently pulled over for having expired tags. The police officer gave me a fix it ticket for the tags, but he also gave me a ticket to schedule a court date for a misdemeanor charge of driving in California with an out-of-state drivers license.
I looked up the legalities, and the California DMV does state that you need to get a new drivers license after 10 days of being in the state of California. I have been driving with my Idaho license here for over a year.
I have scheduled the court date and now I am worried. Is there anything I can do to get out of this? What would be my best course of action?
