Back in 2017, Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, was convicted of predatory sexual assault against a child and acting in a manner injurious to a child. Now, after two long years, he will finally he sentenced this month.
According to Bossip, Maraj will stand in front of a judge in the sex crimes division of Nassau County Supreme Court on December 18 to see how much time he will serve. A life sentence is what he’s facing and this is a real possibility. He and his legal team originally tried to get the guilty verdict tossed out due to jury misconduct allegations but a judge ruled against a mistrial.
Maraj’s defense lawyer has stated that the child’s rape claims are part of a plot by her mother in an attempt to extort millions. Leading up to this sentencing, Maraj has been incarcerated at Nassau County Jail.
