Nicki Minaj's Brother Found Guilty Of Raping His 11-year-old Stepdaughter, Faces 25-year Jail Time

Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, could spend the rest of his life behind bars. Jurors found Maraj guilty of raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter repeatedly.

The charges carry the potential for 25 years to life in prison. Maraj is 38.  His lawyer says he will appeal.  The girl is now 14. She testified she was repeatedly assaulted over eight months in 2015 at Maraj's home in Baldwin. 

Prosecutors say DNA evidence supports the allegations. The girl's younger brother testified that he witnessed one assault. 

Maraj's lawyers said the rape allegations were concocted by the girl's mother as part of a scheme to get Nicki Minaj to pay $25 million in hush money.

He will be sentenced on Dec. 14.
