Jonathan Majors has been found guilty of harassment and reckless assault in the third degree.

The actor received the verdict on Monday, December 18, by a six-person jury after four hours of deliberation spread across four days. Majors had initially been faced with four charges of assault and pled not guilty to all charges.

He was found not guilty of two of the four charges, intentional assault in the third degree and aggravated harassment in the second degree.

In March, he had called 911 after he said he found his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, unconscious in their shared apartment. Police charged Majors after discovering bruises and other injuries on Jabbari’s body, including a fractured finger.

Jabbari testified throughout the first four days of the trial, saying that Majors had injured her during a physical altercation that took place in a car just hours before she was found unconscious.

The assault charges refer to the alleged altercation in the car, while the harassment charge refers to Jabbari’s testimony that Majors threw her back into the car as she tried to exit, an incident that was captured on surveillance footage.

The charges had been brought against him not by the victim herself, but instead by the state of New York, so Majors was subjected to a criminal trial rather than a civil trial. He is now set to be sentenced on February 6.
