The verdict is in.
And it doesn’t look good for actor Jonathan Majors.
Jonathan Majors was convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. A Manhattan jury found the Marvel actor guilty on Monday of two misdemeanor counts of harassment and assault but acquitted him on two other counts.
The six-person jury found Majors not guilty on one count of intentional assault in the third degree and one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree. Majors, wearing a dark gray suit and seated in the courtroom with his attorneys and current girlfriend Meagan Good, did not react when the verdict was read.
Judge Michael Gaffey set a sentencing date of Feb. 6. Majors faces up to a year in jail, but he could also be sentenced to probation.
Majors was arrested in March in New York City after he assaulted Jabbari in the backseat of a private vehicle. Jabbari, a 30-year-old choreographer who met Majors on the set of Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” testified she grabbed Majors’ phone after seeing a text message from another woman. Jabbari described that as Majors attempted to forcefully retrieve his phone from her, she felt “a hard blow” across her head that resulted in bruising, swelling and substantial pain.
Variety also noted, “Shortly after the guilty verdict, Marvel Studios severed ties with Majors, who played the central villain, Kang the Conqueror, in Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Prosecutor Kelly Galloway said during the trial’s closing statements, “What this really boils down to is four simple words: control, domination, manipulation and abuse. [Those are the] tactics used by those who commit domestic violence against partners, against Grace.”
