Nicki Minaj's brother convicted in rape case of preteen girl

Nicki Minaj's brother was just found guilty in his child rape trial. a case that lasted almost 3 weeks.

Jelani Maraj, 38, faces up to life in prison after he was convicted of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering welfare of a child for having repeated sexual contact with an 11-year-old girl at his home in Baldwin. According to the original indictment, the acts began on April 1, 2015, and continued until November 30, 2015, just one day before his arrest. Maraj is scheduled to be sentenced on December 14. She claimed he would also slap her in the face if she refused his advances. I've never seen anything like it.

"We hope that today's verdict will help the family in the healing process", Nassau County D.A. Madeline Singas told TMZ. The prosecutor told the jurors it would be up to them to determine whether the testimony of the two children was credible.

Prosecutors say DNA evidence supports the allegations.

The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault, and is not identifying the girl's mother in order to protect her daughter's identity. A scientist testified that a stain on a pair of the victim's pajama trousers contained semen that was a 1 in 291 billion match to Maraj, but the defense argued that the trousers may have been cross-contaminated with other laundry.

She said Maraj's wife told her: "It's gonna take lots of money to get out of this one". The woman later fired him as her attorney.

The girl's mother denied that the accusations were made up.
