Marvel Actor Jonathan Majors Convicted of Domestic Violence

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Feb 07, 2024 | 0 Comments

You may assume that if the accusations are false, the police will easily discover this, and all will be well. However, in New Jersey and across the U.S., law enforcement officials take domestic violence seriously. The police will often arrest first and ask the hard questions later. It can be easy to get caught up in a charge that you think you don't deserve. An arrest for domestic violence can impact your career and your reputation in the community, with many people assuming that an arrest equals guilt.

For example, in New York, actor Jonathan Majors was recently convicted of domestic violence charges after a “he said, she said” account of a physical altercation that took place in the back of a cab on March 25th. The rising Creed III and Marvel star is scheduled for sentencing in February. If you're facing an accusation of domestic violence, you need the skilled Lento Law Firm Criminal Defense Team to protect your rights. Call today at 888.535.3686 to see how they can help you.

The Majors Domestic Violence Trial

In the December trial of Jonathan Majors, the prosecution argued that while Majors was in the back of a cab with his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, he grabbed her hand, fracturing her finger, twisted her arm behind her back, and struck her on the side of the head after she read an incoming text from another woman on Majors' phone. The prosecution painted this as the latest in a pattern of emotional and physical abuse. Majors' defense claimed his ex-girlfriend made the false accusation after he broke up with her and that he was the true victim in the altercation, left bloodied while his ex went out clubbing for the night.

After Majors' arrest, she sought a restraining order while he filed a cross-complaint against Jabbari, and police arrested her. However, prosecutors dropped the charges only four days later. At trial, despite conflicting testimony, the court convicted Majors of assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree. He faces up to a year in jail for assault and the loss of his career as an actor.
