Charges against Jonathan Majors:
Four misdemeanour charges for misdemeanour assault, aggravated assault, and harassment were brought against the Marvel movie star. The actor was cleared of one count of aggravated harassment and one count of assault.
This implies that the jury thought Majors assaulted Jabbari by tossing her inside his car after she had left it, even though they didn’t think he meant to harm her.
Additionally, Judge Michael Gaffey extended Jabbari’s protection order. Majors has been told not to get in touch with her, NBC News reports.
The scheduled date of Majors’ sentencing is February 6, 2024. The actor could spend up to a year on probation or in jail.
Majors was accused of assault by a few other victims in addition to Jabbari. It is purported that he mistreated two romantic partners emotionally and one partner physically. A Rolling Stone investigation claimed that he also mistreated crew members on movie sets.
At the end of the trial, the prosecution stated that Majors “didn’t hesitate to use physical violence” against Jabbari? Before “striking a blow” to her head, he allegedly twisted her right arm behind her back. Jabbari was the aggressor, according to Majors’ lawyer, who called the accusations “fake.”
