Jonathan Majors Sentenced to Domestic Abuse Prevention Program

Jonathan Majors, the former Marvel actor, has been sentenced to a 52-week domestic abuse prevention program after being convicted of recklessly assaulting and harassing his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. The sentencing took place on Monday in New York City, where Majors appeared solemn and declined to make a statement.

Judge Michael Gaffey determined that jail time was not necessary for the misdemeanor domestic violence offense. However, Majors is required to complete the intensive course in person. Additionally, he is prohibited from owning or applying for a firearm. Jabbari was granted a full order of protection against Majors.

During the court proceedings, Jabbari, a professional dancer, read an emotional victim impact statement, describing Majors as holding her in “the palm of his abusive hand.” She expressed her belief that Majors has not taken responsibility for his actions and remains a danger to others. Jabbari filed a defamation and assault and battery lawsuit against Majors last month.

Majors arrived at court accompanied by his girlfriend, actress Meagan Good, and was seen reading his Bible before the proceedings began. Some of Majors’ fans and online supporters, wearing red beanies as a show of solidarity, were escorted into the courtroom by one of his attorneys. Majors greeted and hugged them upon entering the room.

The actor was found guilty of reckless assault in the third degree and a harassment violation for injuring Jabbari during an altercation in March 2023. The fight erupted when Jabbari discovered a romantic text message on Majors’ phone from another woman. Jabbari suffered a fractured finger and a gash behind her ear, while Majors claimed she was the aggressor that night. He expressed shock at the verdict.

The sentencing, originally scheduled for February, was delayed due to a last-minute motion filed by Majors’ attorneys seeking to overturn the jury’s verdict. The motion was denied last week. In her civil suit against Majors, Jabbari detailed additional instances of alleged physical abuse during their nearly two-year relationship.

Majors’ legal team attempted to keep certain evidence permanently sealed, including testimonies from two former girlfriends, actresses Emma Duncan and Maura Hooper, who claimed he was physically and/or emotionally abusive towards them. Majors denied the allegations, describing both relationships as “toxic.” Rolling Stone’s investigation in June corroborated details of the alleged abuse through more than a dozen independent sources.

While Majors’ criminal case in New York has concluded, London’s Metropolitan Police confirmed an ongoing investigation into allegations of physical assaults that occurred in September 2022. These allegations align with an incident highlighted by Jabbari in her civil case, where Majors allegedly threw her onto a car hood and later banged her head against the marble floor while strangling her.

It is estimated that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking in their lifetime, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
