Actor Jonathan Majors has sparked controversy in the media lately.

Majors, known for his role in Creed III and other films, was found guilty of domestic violence.

The decision was based on a complaint filed for misdemeanor assault against his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.

He has been ordered to undergo a year of counseling but has avoided jail time, according to The Associated Press.

The Manhattan jury’s verdict in December placed Majors in a delicate legal situation, facing the possibility of spending up to a year behind bars.

On Monday, Judge Michael Gaffey sentenced Majors to probation after noting that both sides in the case agreed that the charges did not warrant jail time.

Why did the actor avoid a more severe charge? Because he was a first-time offender with no criminal record.

He also has to continue counseling, the AP stated.

Majors faces a year in jail if he is found to have violated the terms of his probation, which also included a no-contact order with Jabbari.

He was dressed all in black and accompanied by his girlfriend, actress Meagan Good, as he left the courthouse without stopping to speak to the press.

His lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, said the actor did not want to make any public statements that Jabbari could use against him in the civil lawsuit which she filed against the actor.

He is “committed to growing as a person” and will complete any court-ordered program “with an open heart,” even if he maintains his innocence and plans to appeal, the attorney reported.

The consequences of his actions

«He has lost his whole career,» Chaudhry said in court. «This has been the most challenging year of his life.»

Jabbari, however, said Majors refuses to acknowledge his guilt and remains a danger to those around him.

«He’s not sorry. He has not accepted responsibility,» she stated. «He will do this again and he will hurt other women. He believes he is above the law.»

Jabbari said Majors had led her to believe the two were in a romantic relationship, but in reality, he isolated her from the rest of the world, including from her family and friends.

Instead of acknowledging his actions, Majors has openly criticized the court proceedings.

And he launched a “high-powered PR campaign,” including a nationally televised interview.

The conviction arose from an altercation last March, in which Jabbari accused him of attacking her in the back seat of a chauffeured car.

She said he hit her in the head with his open hand, twisted her arm behind her back and squeezed her middle finger until it fractured.
