A New York City jury found Majors guilty of two misdemeanor counts of assault and harassment on Dec. 18. The actor was acquitted of one count of intentional assault in the third degree and one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree.

He faces up to a year in jail following the conviction, and is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 6.

Majors, 34, maintained his innocence throughout the case.

The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star was arrested after Jabbari accused him of assaulting her on March 25, 2023, as they rode in the back of a chauffeured SUV.

During his two-week trial, Majors was accused of a “pattern of abuse.”

The evidence presented by prosecutors included voice recordings of conversations between Majors and Jabbari; photos of Jabbari’s alleged injuries; video of a confused Jabbari “unconscious” in Majors’ home; and surveillance video recorded during the March confrontation.

In the video, Majors appeared to pick Jabbari up after she got out of the back of the SUV they were in, and pushed her back into the vehicle. She got out of the car again, leading to a short scuffle on the sidewalk. Majors then ran down the street trying to flee Jabbari and she chased him for several blocks.

Majors filed a counter-complaint against Jabbari in June, saying he was assaulted during the confrontation.

In October, Jabbari was arrested by the NYPD on misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief counts. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said it has no plans to prosecute Jabbari.

Following his conviction, Majors was dropped by Marvel. The actor had been set to star in the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as villain Kang the Conqueror.
