Nicki Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for predatory sexual assault against a child(11 years old stepdaughter).
Judge Robert McDonald sentenced Maraj on Monday the 25th of January in Long Island. According to reports Jelani Maraj was previously found guilty of child sexual assault and endangering a minor in his 2017 trial.
“You raped this child. You raped her over and over again,” Nassau County Supreme Couty Judge Robert McDonald said.
His stepdaughter, who was 11 years old at the time of the acts, told the courts in 2017 that Maraj raped her “repeatedly between April and November of 2015,”
The victim said Maraj sexually assaulted her at their home while her mother was at work. The girl told the court that Maraj threatened her and slapped her if she refused his advances.
Maraj, however, denied the allegations and his defense claimed the victim’s mother made up the assault to extort $25 million from Minaj.
He was sentenced 25 years in jail two years after the jury handed down the responsible verdict for the sexual abuse.
