The domestic abuse trial for actor Jonathan Majors was delayed until at least September 6 after New York City prosecutors requested additional time to prepare on Thursday.
Jonathan Majors, 33, showed up in court to begin his trial on charges arising from an altercation with a lady in March, who claims Jonathan Majors forced her arm behind her back, punched her in the head, and forced her into a car.
In a report published by AP News, the woman had minor neck and head injuries, including an ear cut, at a hospital.
Jonathan Majors face minor charges, including assault, and if found guilty, may get a sentence of up to a year in jail.
After the Manhattan district attorney’s Office prosecutors asked for more time for discovery, the judge established a new tentative trial date of September 6 as a result.
After the hearing, Jonathan Majors left the courtroom, saying goodbye to some of the spectators. Jonathan Majors once touched a woman who was sitting close to the door with his hand placed on his heart. Jonathan Majors was wrongfully detained, according to his attorney Priya Chaudhry, who claimed in an email that Jonathan Majors had “suffered at the hands” of his accuser.
