After three weeks, the trial of Jelani Maraj has come to an end.
According to TMZ, the brother of Nicki Minaj has been found guilty of of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child after raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter, now 13.
Throughout the trial, jurors heard testimony from the vitcim and her 10-year-old brother, who was 8 when he allegedly walked in on Maraj raping his sister in the basement of their home. Disturbing details reveal that Maraj allegedly taught the victim how to make anal sex less painful and blamed the child for the attacks. He allegedly told her she would be taken from her mother if she came forward.
Maraj’s team alleges the victim’s mother and his ex-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, told her daughter to lie in order to extort millions from Maraj’s famous sister. It was rumored that Minaj would take the stand, but she did not.
Maraj is set to be sentenced Dec. 14 and faces up to life in prison.
