Nicki Minaj's brother convicted of raping his stepdaughter

Nicki Minaj's brother convicted of raping his stepdaughter

He will be held without bail in Nassau County Correctional Center in East Meadow, New York.

The defense had also claimed during the month-long trial that the allegations had been created to extort $25 million from the man's famous sister; they also had to walk back a claim that Minaj would testify on her brother's behalf.

The older brother of Minaj, 34, will be sentenced next month and could face faces 25 years to life behind bars. Sentencing is to take place December 14. Maraj's lawyer, David Schwartz, intends to appeal the verdict. He is now in Nassau County Jail and is set to be sentenced next month. Their father, Robert Maraj, was reportedly an abusive alcoholic.

Jurors delivered their verdict on Thursday (November 9) in Nassau County Court. She testified in detail about how Maraj would allegedly commit sexual acts up to four times a week and sometimes twice daily.

IUDs Might Significantly Reduce the Cervical Cancer Risk
Women who had used an IUD were 36% less likely to develop cervical cancer (odds ratio 0.64, 95% confidence interval 0.53 to 0.77). The number of women diagnosed with cervical cancer is steadily rising, according to World Health Organisation (WHO) figures.

"We hope that today's verdict will help the family in the healing process", Nassau County D.A. Madeline Singas told TMZ.

The prosecution sought testimony from the victim's 10-year-old brother, who claimed that he'd once accidentally stumbled upon Maraj sexually assaulting his sister in their home, and they presented DNA evidence where an expert witness testified that semen found on the girl's pajama trousers was a one-in-291 billion match with the defendant. She told jurors Maraj treated her as if she was his own daughter before the abuse then began. If she refused his advances, he physically attacked her, she testified, according to Brosh.

His lawyers countered that the girl's mother beat her into complying with the fraudulent criminal claims, as part of an attempted shakedown of Maraj's superstar singer, says Brosh.

Jelani Maraj was found guilty of raping an 11-year-old girl on multiple occasions. Maraj, the boy said, told him to stay silent or he would be taken from his mother, says Brosh.
