Lawyer for Movie star Jonathan Majors who made a virtual appearance in court for a domestic violence case says his client is being subjected to “a witch hunt.”
The lawyers added that the said witch hunt is a result of “the racial bias that permeates the criminal justice system.”
The 33-year-old actor appeared in court via Zoom on Tuesday.
Variety has reported that Major’s defense has filed a motion in court and the prosecution has until May 23 to respond.
Majors maintains his innocence.
Priya Chaudhry released the following statement after the hearing:
“We have provided the District Attorney (D.A.) with irrefutable evidence that the woman is lying, including video proof showing nothing happened, especially not where she claimed. We did this with the explicit promise from the D.A. that they would not ‘fix’ their case and change it as we proved the woman is lying.
Yet this false case continues, the woman’s claimed location shifts and her story morphs. This is a witch hunt against Jonathan Majors, driven by baseless claims. Instead of dismissing the allegations in the face of the woman’s clear lies, the D.A. has adjusted the charges to match the woman’s new lies. To be clear, there are no new charges against Mr. Majors.
Now, we have obtained even more video evidence of his innocence, but we are hesitant to share it, for fear the D.A. will tip the woman off to change her story again.”
