Nicki Minaj's Brother Convicted Of Child Sexual Assault

Jelani Maraj Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj's older brother Jelani Maraj has been convicted of sexually assaulting a minor who was younger than 13-years-old at the time of the assault.

#JelaniMaraj was found guilty for repeatedly raping his 11-year-old former stepdaughter while her mother was at work. A stoic Maraj showed zero emotion as he was convicted of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to CBS News, Maraj's attorney said he will appeal, as he believes the sexual assault allegations were a ploy by Maraj's now ex-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, who allegedly wanted to extort him for $25 million to keep quiet.

Maraj faces 25 years to life in prison. Additionally, Maraj's brother who is now 10-years-old said he saw Maraj's "private parts" touching his sister.

The first sexual assault occurred in April 2015, just before the victim's mother married Maraj in a $30,000 ceremony paid for by Minaj, officials charged.

Semen found on the victim's pajamas was crucial evidence. The Associated Press reported a jury found Maraj guilty of predatory sexual assault November 9 following deliberations.

She told jurors that he had previously treated her like a daughter but told her that the abuse was her fault and that she "wanted it to happen". "What (the victim) went through all that time", Juror Arthur Naclerio, 67, said. "The amount of evidence we have that wasn't allowed in this case is unbelievable". Initial reports claimed she would testify in her brother's defense, but she ended up not doing so. I've never seen anything like it.

A scientist testified at the trial for the prosecution that a stain on a pair of the victim's pajama trousers, which tests showed could contain semen, was a 1 in 291 billion match to Maraj's DNA profile.

Maraj's ex-wife vehemently denied this allegation.

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 woman later fired him as her attorney. He'll be sentenced on December 14.
