American actor, Jonathan Majors, accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, chose not to testify as his defense rested in the ongoing trial. Majors’ attorneys, Priya Chaudhry and Seth Zuckerman, presented three witnesses, including a medical expert and Majors’ talent agent, before concluding their case. Closing arguments are scheduled for Thursday, with the jury expected to deliberate soon after.
Jabbari alleges Majors assaulted her in March, causing injuries such as a fractured finger and a cut behind her ear. The defense questioned the severity of the injuries, challenging the prosecution’s claims. Evidence, including security footage, photos of Jabbari’s injuries, and a 911 call, was released by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
The defense emphasized doubts about the allegations, citing a lack of evidence. Majors, known for his roles in Marvel productions, pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of assault and aggravated harassment. The trial’s conclusion may bring clarity to the high-profile case that has unfolded with insights into Majors’ personal life and legal proceedings.
