Jonathan Majors expresses his 'shock' at the verdict in his first interview since being convicted of assault

Jonathan Majors The sentencing hearing was postponed after the actor was scheduled to appear in court to hear punishments following a jury conviction in December in the domestic assault case.

Majors' attorneys filed a motion to vacate the sentence, which under New York law can be filed after conviction but before sentencing, on Monday evening.

Prosecutors now have until next month to respond to the motion. Judge Michael Jaffe set a new sentencing hearing for April 8.

The former Marvel star, 34, was found guilty of third-degree assault and harassment in December. The jury acquitted him of assault and aggravated harassment. He faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison.

Officials arrested Majors in March 2023 when Ms. Jabbari accused him of slapping her and throwing her in a car.

After his conviction, Majors' attorney Priya Chowdhury said, “The jury clearly did not believe Grace Jabari's account of what happened in the SUV because they found that Mr. Majors did not intentionally cause any of her injuries.”

Marvel and the Walt Disney Corporation have both ended their association with Majors.
