Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj sentenced to 25 years in prison for raping his stepdaughter
Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for repeatedly raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter.
Jelani who was handed his jail sentence by Judge Robert McDonald in a New York court on Monday January 25, was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
Though Nicki Minaj’s brother repeatedly denied the allegations, claiming the story was concocted to extort his famous younger sister, his stepdaughter took the stand in a 2017 trial to narrate how he raped her in their Baldwin home while he was married to her mother.
He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, two years after a jury handed down the guilty verdict for the sexual abuse which began in 2015.
