The woman who accused Marvel actor Jonathan Majors of assaulting her in New York in March has faced legal repercussions herself. Grace Jabbari, the woman in question, was arrested on Wednesday on charges of assault and criminal mischief related to the domestic dispute. However, it has been confirmed that she will not face prosecution.
On Wednesday evening, Grace Jabbari was arrested and issued a desk appearance ticket, requiring her to address the charges in court at a later date, according to a New York Police Department spokesperson.
Nevertheless, Manhattan prosecutors have decided not to pursue her case any further. A spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office stated, “The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has officially declined to prosecute the case against Grace Jabbari because it lacks prosecutorial merit.” They added that the matter is now closed and sealed.
In response to these developments, Grace Jabbari’s attorney, Ross Kramer, expressed his disappointment that his client “had to face an arrest that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office already determined was unwarranted.” He emphasized that the DA’s office reviewed the case and concluded that Ms. Jabbari was the victim, not the perpetrator.
Kramer also mentioned that the DA’s office had made it clear they wouldn’t be charging Ms. Jabbari with any offense prior to her arrival at the police precinct. Despite the distressing experience of the arrest, he described Ms. Jabbari as a strong and resilient individual determined to move forward.
Jonathan Majors had previously filed a domestic violence complaint against Grace Jabbari in June, alleging incidents of physical harm. In the wake of these legal proceedings, he faced consequences in his professional life, including being dropped by his talent manager and publicist and being removed from several high-profile projects.
Majors’ trial for his misdemeanor charges is scheduled to begin on November 29.
