Original Story: (Dec 14, 2023): Jonathan Majors definitely has at least one person in his corner.
Today prosecutors and the defense gave closing arguments in Jonathan Majors’ assault case. The 34-year-old is facing charges of assault in the third degree with intent to cause physical injury, assault in the third degree recklessly causing physical injury, aggravated harassment in the second degree, and harassment in the second degree for allegedly physically harming his then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari following a verbal dispute they had back in March. If convicted Jonathan Majors is looking at a year behind bars.
Assistant District Attorney Kelli Galaway claimed that the unfortunate situation was about “control, domination, manipulation and abuse.”
Galaway added that “the defendant didn’t hesitate to use physical violence” when Grace Jabbari, 30, found questionable texts on Majors’ phone. As you may recall, their altercation reportedly stemmed from the professional dancer calling her ex out for receiving flirtatious text messages from another woman.
However, Majors’ lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, claimed he was a victim of discrimination. Chaudhry reportedly told the jury as she became emotional,
“Why are you here?…You are here to end this nightmare for Jonathan Majors.”
While she spoke Majors wiped away tears from his face with the back of his coat sleeve, according to reports.
His girlfriend, actress Meagan Good, 42, also appeared to be overwhelmed with emotions and was reportedly seen wiping tears away from her own eyes with a tissue. Chaudhry continued, claiming the arresting police officers deemed Majors the abuser because of the color of his skin.
“They took a look at Mr. Majors and made up their minds. They decided who was the victim and who was the criminal, and then they asked Grace if Mr. Majors had done this to her.”
At this time, the final verdict on the four charges has not yet been given by the jury.
