Jonathan Majors Leaves Marvel After Assault Conviction

Jonathan Majors Leaves Marvel After Assault Conviction: a Manhattan jury, consisting of six members, found actor Jonathan Majors guilty on Monday. The jury convicted him on one misdemeanor assault charge and one harassment violation related to an incident with his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. The emerging Hollywood star, known for his role in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” faced additional charges, but he was acquitted of a different assault charge and aggravated harassment.

As the verdict was announced, Majors, who had hoped the trial would salvage his reputation, stood facing the jurors with no immediate reaction, looking slightly downward. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 6, with potential consequences including up to a year in jail for the assault conviction, though probation or other non-jail sentences are also possible.
Majors confronted a total of eight misdemeanor counts, encompassing assault, aggravated harassment, and harassment, subsequent to his arrest in March. The charges stemmed from an altercation with Grace Jabbari, a British dancer and movement coach, during a car ride in Manhattan. Jabbari alleged that Majors struck her in the head with his open hand, twisted her arm behind her back, and applied enough pressure to fracture her middle finger.
In response to the accusations, Majors entered a plea of not guilty to all charges.

Jonathan Majors’ Lawyer Affirms Actor’s Anticipation to Completely Vindicate Himself

In a statement, Jonathan Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, conveyed that Majors “retains confidence in the legal proceedings and anticipates the complete vindication of his name.”
The jury’s decision reflects their disbelief in Grace Jabbari’s account of the SUV incident, as they concluded that Mr. Majors did not intentionally inflict harm on her. While we are dismayed by this lack of faith in Ms. Jabbari’s narrative, it is perplexing that the jury simultaneously deemed Mr. Majors reckless while she was allegedly attacking him,” stated Majors’ legal representation.

Jonathan Majors’ Text Messages and Voice Recordings to Grace Jabbari Made Public

The decision follows New York Criminal Court Judge Michael Gaffey’s authorization for additional evidence to be disclosed to the public in the case concerning a purportedly violent altercation in the car’s backseat between the 34-year-old Marvel star and Jabbari.
Materials Released Include Voice Recordings of Majors Criticizing Jabbari, Photos Depicting Jabbari’s Injuries, a Recording of Majors’ 911 Call, and Surveillance Video Capturing Majors Assisting Jabbari Back into a Car.

Majors’ legal representatives contended that Jabbari instigated the incident. During the concluding statements on December 14, Majors’ attorney portrayed Jabbari as a habitual fabricator, suggesting that she fabricated a tale of an abusive relationship as retaliation upon discovering her two-year boyfriend texting another woman.
In contrast, prosecutors asserted that the actor delivered a forceful blow to his partner’s head, rendering her stunned in the car’s backseat. They argued that this assault marked the latest escalation in Majors’ consistent efforts to control his girlfriend through a combination of physical and emotional abuse. Prosecutors cited a previous incident where Majors allegedly discouraged Jabbari from seeking medical attention for a head injury, suggesting it could trigger an investigation.
