Actor Jonathan Majors Avoids Jail Time in Domestic Violence Case

Actor Jonathan Majors, whose once-soaring career crashed after a New York jury found him guilty of assaulting and harassing his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, has been sentenced to 52 weeks of a domestic violence intervention program and probation. He will avoid serving jail time.

The judgment came Monday morning in a New York criminal courtroom in lower Manhattan. Judge Michael Gaffey issued a protection order for Jabbari and stipulated that Majors must continue attending therapy, but also said that “jail is not necessary” for the actor.

In December, Majors was found guilty on two misdemeanor charges in a domestic violence case — assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree — relating to a March 2023 argument with his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. During the same trial, the jury found Majors not guilty of intentional assault in the third degree and aggravated harassment in the second degree, indicating that they did not believe Majors went into the situation intending to hurt Jabbari.
