Nicki Minaj Brother Found Guilty In Child Rape Case

(Yahoo News) – Nicki Minaj Brother Found Guilty: Jelani Maraj, brother to Nicki Minaj, was found guilty Thursday (Nov. 9) of predatory sexual assault in a case in which he was accused of raping an 11-year-old girl inside his Long Island home, USA Today reports.

Maraj’s lawyer say they will appeal the verdict, however the charge carries a potential 25 year prison sentence. While neither Maraj or the Pinkprint artist testified, the victim, who is now 14, did testify and say she was repeatedly assaulted for the better part of 2015 inside Maraj’s Baldwin home.

Prosecutors say DNA evidence found inside the home support the claims, and the victim’s brother also testified he witnessed the assault. Maraj’s lawyer say the rape allegations were created by the victim’s mother who demanded $25 million from the rapper as a means of keeping her daughter quiet.

Upon learning of the guilty verdict, some took to Twitter to offer a mixed bag of reactions.
