Maraj’s lawyers also asked the DA for any statements that the alleged victim, witnesses or anyone else made that corroborated their claim that the accuser had sex with someone else other than Maraj.
But the Nassau County District Attorney begs to differ, and a grand jury April 4 indicted Maraj on child sex crimes, accusing him of raping and sodomizing the girl at least twice from April through November 2015.
BOSSIP can also reveal that after Maraj’s arrest, Nassau County’s Child Protective Services opened two investigations focused on him over allegations of child abuse. One investigation found evidence that he mistreated or abused a child, and the other report deemed the claims “unfounded.”
Maraj’s lawyers believe that the results that cleared Maraj show that Child Protective Services has evidence that could clear their client, and asked to review his entire file.
Maraj, 37, is facing felony child rape charges, including predatory sexual assault against a child and first degree sexual conduct against a child. If convicted, Maraj faces up to life in prison.
