Jonathan Majors, the US actor, was sentenced to probation on Monday after being convicted of misdemeanour assault in December.


The verdict stemmed from an alleged altercation with Grace Jabbari, his ex-girlfriend.

Majors faced up to a year in prison, but Michael Gaffey, the presiding judge, said he would serve probation instead.

The terms of his probation include mandatory counselling for one year, with a specific focus on batterer intervention programs.


Priya Chaudhry, the actor’s lawyer, said he would abide by the judge’s sentence but maintains his innocence and plans to appeal.

“He has lost his whole career, this has been the most challenging year of his life,” she said.

Majors consistently denied the assault charges and attempted to have the conviction overturned.  However, his efforts were unsuccessful.


Following the December conviction, the actor was also dropped by Marvel Studios, where he was slated to play a prominent villain in upcoming films.

In February, he faced fresh abuse allegations from two more women.

However, in response, his lawyer denied the abuse claims from both women.

She described the relationships with both women as “toxic” and said the movie star was taking responsibility for his role in them.


Majors rose to prominence in 2019 after starring in the film ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’.

In 2020, the movie star featured alongside the late Chadwick Boseman in ‘Da 5 Bloods’, a Netflix original.

Majors also acted in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and alongside Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed III’.
