American rapper Nicki Minaj’s elder brother risks 25 years in jail over raping of a minor.
This was after a Judge in the Nassau county court of New York found her brother guilty of raping a 12 year old minor back in 2015.
The 38 year old brother who goes by the name Jelani Miraj is alleged to have repeatedly raped the girl whose name has been withheld in April 2015 at his Long Island home.
The girl who is now 14 testified in court during the hearing which kicked off two weeks ago.
The girl said the assaults occurred sometimes four times a week while sometimes they occurred twice a day.
Prosecutors in the case linked Maraj’s DNA to one of the victims pajamas.
Reports indicate that the charges carry a sentence of between 9-25 years in prison.
The incident has received wide coverage by American tabloids.
In March of this year, Nicki Minaj’s arch-rival Remy Ma called out on Nicki Minaj in her infamous diss track ShETHER where she accused her of defending a pedophile.
Earlier in the week, Nicki’s ex Meek Mill was handed over a four year sentence over violating the terms of a sentence he had earlier received.
