Trial for domestic abuse against Jonathan Majors is postponed by a month

Spread MCU News

Because the trial was only recently postponed, Jonathan Majors will have to answer to domestic violence allegations longer than expected. According to sources, the trial was initially scheduled to begin on Thursday, but after a brief hearing in Lower Manhattan attended by Majors, Judge Michael Gaffey established a new date of September 6. According to assistant D.A. Kelli Galaway, “the people are not ready for trial today” because they are still gathering evidence for the case. Priya Chaudhry, Majors’ defence counsel, also submitted a plea for a delay and claimed that the prosecution wasn’t “timely” in providing crucial evidence. Meagan Good, an actress who is Majors’ fiancée, was holding his hand as he came for the hearing.

The Season 2 teaser for Loki, which stars Majors as ‘He Who Remains’, a reimagining of Kang the Conqueror, was released just after the announcement of the trial’s postponement. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Majors’ villain has been established as the undisputed new danger, but the actor’s legal issues have highlighted what Marvel may do if Majors is found guilty in his domestic violence case. In the post-credits sequence of Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantum of Solace, Majors’ appearance as Loki in season two was hinted to. The Loki Season 2 teaser also briefly includes the same scene, in which Victor Timely, a Kang variation, emerges. The actor looks to still be the MCU’s main antagonist, and while Marvel hasn’t commented on Majors’ legal predicament, that subject will probably be covered in greater detail in the future season of the Disney+ series.

Majors’ legal problems started when he was detained in Manhattan on March 25 and charged with assault and severe harassment as a result of an alleged argument with Grace Jabbari, who was at the time his girlfriend. Officers were informed by Jabbari that she had been assaulted and had been sent to the hospital with “minor injuries to her head and neck.” Majors was ultimately charged with four offences; he entered a not guilty plea to all of them. Despite the fact that the strangling accusation was ultimately withdrawn, the actor may spend up to a year in jail if found guilty. Majors and Jabbari are not permitted to communicate directly or via third parties as a result of Jabbari being given a temporary restraining order against Majors. Majors claims that Jabbari assaulted him through his defence counsel, despite the fact that he maintains he never touched her. Additionally, his legal team has claimed that the inquiry against him was influenced by “racial bias” and that the case is a “witch hunt”. Majors’ attorney said during the last hearing in June that “last week, we delivered additional compelling evidence to the District Attorney, clearly proving [the alleged victim’s] assault on Jonathan Majors and not the other way around.”
