The domestic violence sentencing for Jonathan Majors that was scheduled for January 6 has been postponed, as reported by Deadline.
Majors' new sentencing date is April 8. He could face up to one year in prison.
In December, the “Loki” star was acquitted on two other charges of aggravated harassment and another assault charge.
The dispute involving the former couple began in the backseat of a chauffeured car and then on the streets of Manhattan in March 2023.
Jabbari accused Majors of “hitting her in the head with his open hand, twisting her arm behind her back and squeezing her middle finger until it fractured.”
During the trial, text messages between Majors and Jabbari revealed that the “Creed” actor admitted to being physically violent towards his former girlfriend in September 2022 in a separate assault charge.
Majors texted Jabbari, “I fear you have no perspective of what could happen if you go to the hospital. They will ask you questions, and as I don’t think you actually protect us, it could lead to an investigation even if you do lie, and they suspect something.”
Reading her response text before the court, Jabbari said, "I will tell the doctor I bumped my head." Tearfully, she expressed her intention to delay seeking medical help but admitted needing stronger painkillers. Assistant District Attorney Kelli Galaway read the rest of Jabbari's message: "Why would I tell them what really happened when it’s clear I want to be with you?"
Prosecutors alleged Majors “didn’t hesitate to use physical violence” in their closing arguments last week.
Although he did not take the stand in his defense, Chaudhry claimed that Majors was the victim of “white lies, big lies, and pretty little lies” concocted by Jabbari to “exact revenge on an unfaithful partner.”
