Jonathan Majors escapes jail time, sentenced to domestic violence treatment program

Actor Jonathan Majors escaped jail time and was sentenced by a New York judge on Monday to participate a domestic violence treatment program, over three months after being convicted of reckless assault and harassment. Per Deadline, the one-year “in person batterers” intervention program will take place in LA, where Majors is based.

Majors, who pleaded not guilty and did not testify at his trial, was charged with four misdemeanor charges. The actor was convicted by the jury of three men and three women in the three-week trial late last year, after several days of deliberations. He was not convicted by the jurors of intentional assault in the third degree and of aggravated harassment in the second degree against then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari. Majors could have faced up to a year of jail time for his conviction on December 18 on two misdemeanor counts of reckless assault and harassment against Jabbari.

During Monday’s sentencing, Manhattan Judge Michael Gaffey issued a permanent order of protection against any contact whatsoever with Jabbari, and continued therapy for Majors. The actor cannot apply for or own a gun, and any violation of the sentencing terms could result in Majors being put behind bars for up to 364 days. If Majors does not complete the West Coast intervention program, he could also face six months in jail.
