After prosecutors from New York City requested a judge to postpone the actor Jonathan Majors’ trial, he is scheduled to appear in court again in September on assault allegations.
The trial of actor Jonathan Majors for domestic abuse was moved until September 6 at the latest after New York City prosecutors requested further time on Thursday for preparation.
On accusations arising from a March incident with a woman who claims he pulled her arm behind her back, slapped her on the head, and shoved her into a car, Majors, 33, made an appearance in court for what was supposed to be the beginning of his trial. The woman had minor head and neck injuries, as well as an ear cut, at a hospital.
Majors faces misdemeanor charges involving assault and can be sentenced to jail for as much as year if convicted.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office prosecutors asked for further time for discovery, and the judge granted their request, setting a new tentative trial date of September 6.
Following the hearing, the majors acknowledged those sat in the gallery as they left the courtroom. He once knocked into a woman who was sitting close to the door with his hand on his heart.Majors was wrongfully jailed, according to his lawyer Priya Chaudhry, and he was the one who “suffered at the hands” of his accuser, according to an email.
She said that Majors “has had his life, career, and image torn apart” and that he was “the real victim in this shameful ordeal.” However, he is steadfast in his resolve to be freed from this terrifying experience.
Among other films, Majors has starred in “Creed III” and “Antman and the Wasp: Quantumania.”
As a representative of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Doug Cohen stated, “We look towards presenting the full facts and proof at trial.”
