Brother in rape trial
THE brother of rapper Nicki Minaj was convicted yesterday of predatory sexual assault after being charged with repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl at his Long Island home.
Jurors delivered their verdict on the second day of deliberations in Jelani Maraj’s trial.
The charges carry the potential for 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced on December 14. Maraj, 38, did not appear to react when the verdict was read in a Nassau County courtroom.
