The 37-year-old waited outside the courtroom as his attorneys had a closed door conference. The judge, Terence P. Murphy, had to oversee an unrelated jury selection and was not available to preside over Maraj’s scheduled hearing.
Maraj’s representatives told BOSSIP they had “no comment.”
Maraj was arrested Dec. 1 after the alleged 12-year-old victim said the abuse had gone on since April.
He’s been charged with felony sexual conduct against a child in the first degree, and first degree rape, also a felony. He could face up to 50 years in prison if convicted.
The date of Maraj’s next hearing was not immediately available.
