Alvin Bragg touts conviction of actor Jonathan Majors on abuse charges

 December 20, 2023

While Alvin Bragg is known to conservatives for what they regard as his disgraceful targeting of former President Donald Trump, the Manhattan district attorney recently made headlines for a very different reason.

According to People magazine, Bragg released a statement on Monday after actor Jonathan Majors was convicted of abuse charges.

Bragg thanks "survivor for bravely telling her story"

"At the Manhattan D.A.'s Office, we are committed to centering survivors in all of our work," Bragg's statement declared.

"The evidence presented throughout this trial illustrated a cycle of psychological and emotional abuse, and escalating patterns of coercion far too common across the many intimate partner violence cases we see each and every day," he continued.

"Today, a jury determined that pattern of abuse and coercion culminated with Mr. Majors assaulting and harassing his girlfriend," the district attorney declared.

"We thank the jury for its service and the survivor for bravely telling her story despite having to relive her trauma on the stand," Bragg concluded.

Actor faces prospect of a year behind bars as well as probation or treatment

People noted that Majors was found guilty of misdemeanor assault in the third degree, recklessly causing physical injury as well as harassment in the second degree.

However, the 34-year-old "Creed III" star was acquitted on additional charges of misdemeanor assault in the third degree with intent to cause physical injury and misdemeanor aggravated harassment in the second degree.

Those charges arose from a fight Majors had in March with his then-girlfriend, British dancer Grace Jabbari, on the streets of Manhattan's Chinatown.

Majors is scheduled to be sentenced on February 6, and while he may face up to a year behind bars, the actor could also be sentenced to probation or treatment as an alternative.

Meanwhile, the protection order prohibiting Majors from contacting Jabbari remains in effect and he faces additional charges should he attempt to contact her.

Majors sent text messages warning victim not to see medical help

People recalled how during the trial, prosecutors introduced text messages which Majors sent to Jabbari following their altercation.

"I fear you have no perspective of what could happen if you go to the hospital," one of the messages from Majors read.

"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," he went on to add.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
