Jelani Maraj Accused Of Preying On Tween Girl
A grand jury has indicted Nicki Minaj’s brother on charges that he repeatedly raped a 12-year-old girl.
The grand jury decided that there was enough evidence to charge newlywed Maraj – Nicki Minaj’s oldest brother and her employee – with sexually abusing the tween girl. They’d deliberated for about a month before handing down the decision April 4, according to court records.
Maraj, 37, is facing a top charge of felony predatory sexual assault against a child, along with felony sexual conduct against a child under age 13, sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
He could get 15 years to life on the top charge alone.
