Jonathan Majors Domestic Violence Sentencing Postponed

02/06/2024 01:07 PM EST by WBLS Staff

Actor Jonathan Majors, known for his roles in Creed III and Marvel productions, has had his sentencing hearing postponed. Originally scheduled for Tuesday, the hearing was delayed due to post-conviction motions filed by his legal team, as confirmed by PEOPLE.

Majors faced charges stemming from an alleged altercation with his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, in New York City in March 2023. Despite a split verdict in December, where he was found guilty of misdemeanor assault and harassment, Majors was acquitted of two other counts related to the incident.

During the trial, Jabbari recounted the events of that March night, describing how a flirtatious text message on Majors’ phone led to a confrontation in a hired car. She alleged that Majors twisted her arm and delivered a blow to her head during the altercation.

The guilty verdict disrupted Majors' burgeoning career, leading to repercussions such as his removal from Marvel Studios projects and the loss of prominent roles in films like Magazine Dreams and the Dennis Rodman biopic.

Majors chose not to testify during the trial but spoke out for the first time in a Good Morning America interview, expressing shock at the verdict and denying the allegations against him.

Despite Majors' denial, evidence presented during the trial, including alleged text messages and audio recordings, painted a picture of a tumultuous relationship marked by instances of abuse and manipulation.

The sentencing will determine the consequences Majors will face for the charges of assault and harassment. With the hearing postponed, the actor's future remains uncertain, as he awaits the outcome of legal proceedings amidst the fallout from the domestic violence case.
