Jonathan Majors Convicted of Harassment and Assault Against Ex-Girlfriend

Jonathan Majors, a 34-year-old actor, stood trial and was found guilty of charges brought by 30-year-old British dancer Grace Jabbari.

Majors' rising Hollywood career took a downturn in March when his ex-girlfriend accused him of harassment and assault. The conflict allegedly occurred in the back seat of an SUV, where she saw a flirtatious text from another woman on his phone. During the argument, Grace claimed Majors hit her on the head and twisted her arm, breaking a finger. "I experienced excruciating pain," Jabbari reported.

Majors faced four charges: assault with intent to cause physical harm, reckless assault causing physical injury, harassment, and aggravated harassment. The jury was tasked with examining conflicting accounts of the chaotic fight in the SUV in Manhattan's Chelsea area on March 25.

The trial began last Thursday, and yesterday a verdict was reached. Majors was found guilty of harassment and assault against his ex-girlfriend, but acquitted on the other two charges. Brittany Henderson, Jabbari's lawyer, stated that justice had prevailed and thanked the jury, court, and Manhattan District Attorney's Office.
Today has shown us that no abuser, no matter how powerful they may seem, is above the law. Ms. Jabbari has shown irrefutable strength and poise while being forced to relive, both in court and very publicly, the abuse she was subjected to. Her unwavering resolve to see this case through to the end is borne out of a desire to show other survivors and victims of domestic violence, that they too, can hold their abuser accountable.

Priya Chaudri, Majors' representative, commented that the mixed verdicts of 'guilty' and 'not guilty' suggest the jury partially doubted Grace's story.
We are disappointed, however, that despite not believing Ms. Jabbari, the jury nevertheless found that Mr. Majors was somehow reckless while she was attacking him. «Mr. Majors is grateful to God, his family, his friends, and his fans for their love and support during these harrowing eight months. Mr. Majors still has faith in the process and looks forward to fully clearing his name.
