Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison after being found guilty for child rape. Judge Robert McDonald sentenced Jelani Maraj on Monday in a New York Court after he was found guilty several months ago.
According to TMZ, Maraj is guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child. His trial lasted less than 3 weeks. The Nassau County D.A. reportedly told TMZ at that time of the verdict, “We hope that today’s verdict will help the family in the healing process.”
Nicki Minaj never testified in court in spite of her brother’s defense team claims that she would. The only time she went to visit her brother in jail was reportedly once to support of her Mother.
