Jonathan Majors’ NYC Trial Commences After Several Delays

November 30, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Jury selection commenced on Wednesday morning for Jonathan Majors’ trial in the vibrant backdrop of New York City, reports NPR. The acclaimed actor stepped into a Manhattan courtroom to confront misdemeanor charges related to alleged harassment and assault against a former girlfriend. Asserting his innocence, Majors has entered a plea of not guilty to all charges.

Anticipation lingers as opening arguments are slated for Thursday morning. During Wednesday’s proceedings, Judge Michael Gaffney took a precautionary step by temporarily sealing certain evidence deemed potentially detrimental to the actor. Describing it as “likely to be prejudicial and inflammatory,” the sealed evidence will only be unveiled if it’s deemed admissible for the trial.

The alleged assault took place on the night of March 25, when Jabbari alleges that Majors, in the confines of a car journey to his apartment, subjected her to a series of distressing actions. These included an alleged slap, forceful reentry into the vehicle after her exit, and a violent encounter where her arm was twisted and hand aggressively grasped, resulting in injuries. Seeking medical attention, Jabbari was subsequently treated at a hospital for minor injuries to her head and neck, including a cut to her ear.

Majors’ trial date has experienced multiple postponements, with his defense team strategically navigating the legal proceedings to mitigate potential consequences stemming from the purported altercation and actively pursuing the dismissal of the case.

Priya Chaudhry, Majors’ legal representative, has vehemently labeled the accuser as dishonest, insinuating that she engaged in revelry and alcohol consumption following the alleged incident. In a legal turn of events, Majors filed a complaint against Jabbari in June, asserting that she assaulted him under the suspicion that he was communicating with another woman.

If convicted, Majors could potentially face a maximum sentence of one year behind bars.
