Former Marvel star, Jonathan Majors, has been sentenced to one year of domestic violence programming instead of jail time for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, according to The Independent.

Before the judge delivered the sentence, Jabbari delivered a victim impact statement, shedding light on the emotional and physical toll of the assault.

She said to the judge,”He is not sorry. He has not accepted responsibility. He will do this again… This is a man who believes he is above the law.”

She described the profound impact it had on her, including extreme emotional pain and a loss of self-esteem.

The prosecution, represented by Kelli Galoway from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, urged the judge to impose a sentence that reflected the severity of Majors’ actions. Galoway emphasized the lack of remorse displayed by Majors and highlighted his attempts to undermine the credibility of the trial. However, Judge Michael Gaffey determined that incarceration was not necessary for Majors.

Jonathan Majors’ Sentencing and Future

The judge’s ruling mandates Majors to attend 52 weeks of in-person battery intervention program in Los Angeles. Additonally, he has to attend therapy. Additionally, Majors was ordered to pay $250 to Jabbari and was issued a protection order.

The sentencing marks a turning point for Majors, whose career trajectory took a downward spiral following the assault conviction. Once touted as the next big star in Hollywood, Majors now must rebuild his reputation and career.

Majors’ conviction extends beyond his personal life. This affects future projects and collaborations, particularly with Marvel Studios. With Majors no longer part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to his role as Kang the Conqueror being recast, the studio faces the challenge of navigating the aftermath and potential repercussions of his actions.

Despite the sentencing, the legal saga surrounding Majors is far from over, with ongoing civil litigation and the prospect of appeals looming on the horizon.
