Questions surround the fate of the criminal case against Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski after he was charged with simple battery on Tuesday.

The charge, which stems from an alleged incident following a press conference at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, earlier this month, is a misdemeanor, but because of the circumstances of the case, it may be treated more seriously, according to one legal expert with whom ABC News spoke.

Lewandowski is accused of grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields at the March 8 event. He has denied the alleged incident with Fields and called her “totally delusional” on Twitter.

Darren Shull, a criminal defense attorney working in Jupiter, Florida, is not connected to the case, but told ABC News that in his experience, less than 1 percent of misdemeanor cases go to trial. He expects this case to be the anomaly.

“Ultimately, I think my guesstimate is that this is going to end up as a trial,” Shull said.

“It would be a huge circus,” he added.
