Nicki Minaj's Brother Jelani Maraj Found Guilty of Child Rape

Nicki Minaj's brother found guilty in Long Island child sex assault case

Nicki Minaj's brother has been found guilty of sexually abusing an 11-year-old girl he considered "a daughter".

Maraj, 38, was charged with raping an 11-year-old girl at his Long Island residence on multiple occasions.

However, the 38 year old now faces 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced at a hearing in December.

But the victim, who is now 14, testified during trial and said Maraj repeatedly raped her and would beat her if she refused his advances.

This photo provided by the Nassau County Police Department shows Jelani Maraj, 37, on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015, in Mineola, N.Y. The Associated Press reported a jury found Maraj guilty of predatory sexual assault November 9 following deliberations.

She also told the jury Maraj warned her to keep the abuse a secret, Brosh confirms. "What (the victim) went through all that time", Juror Arthur Naclerio, 67, said.

Carol Maraj, Jelani's mother, in her testimony said that the victim's mother said, "It's gonna take lots of money to get out of this one", according to People.com.

Moscow plans retaliation to "US pressure on Russian media"
RT has become a focus of the USA investigations into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. This is not the first time Russian Federation has criticized the USA for taking actions against its media outlets.

But a prosecution witness testified that semen found on the accuser's pajama bottoms was a one-in-291 billion match with defendant Maraj.

'She was never involved as far as what we did, ' he testified.

But the defense told jurors the trousers were either cross-contaminated with other laundry, or the accuser's mother may have purposely rubbed Maraj's underwear on them.

The attorney also said the $25 million demand was rejected, and his firm never filed a lawsuit because the girl's mother fired them because she didn't like their strategy.

The girl's brother, now 10, testified that he saw Maraj's "private parts" touching his sister after he walked in on the two of them in 2015 partially clothed.

On December 1, 2015, Maraj was arrested on charges of predatory assault, second-degree course of sexual conduct and a misdemeanor charge of acting in a manner likely to injure a child.
