Jonathan Majors Receives One-Year Probation Instead of Jail for Assaulting Former Partner

Jonathan Majors, the US actor, was sentenced to probation on Monday after being convicted of misdemeanor assault in December.

The verdict resulted from an alleged scuffle with his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.

Majors risked up to a year in prison, but the presiding judge, Michael Gaffey, decided to serve probation instead.

His probation includes one year of required counselling, with a focus on batterer intervention programs.

The actor’s lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, said he would accept the judge’s punishment but maintains his innocence and intends to appeal.

“He has lost his whole career, this has been the most challenging year of his life,” she went on to say.

Majors constantly rejected the assault charges and sought to have their conviction reversed. However, his efforts were futile.

Following his December conviction, the actor was sacked by Marvel Studios, where he was set to play a major villain in upcoming films.

In February, he faced further abuse charges from two more women.

However, in response, his lawyer refuted both women’s assault claims.

She described both women’s relationships as “toxic” and stated that the actor accepted responsibility for his role in them.

Majors rose to notoriety in 2019 with his role in the film ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’.

In 2020, the movie star appeared alongside the late Chadwick Boseman in the Netflix original ‘Da 5 Bloods’.

Majors has also appeared in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and ‘Creed III’, opposite Michael B. Jordan.
