Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj has been sentenced to twenty-five years to life in prison for raping his stepdaughter.
A judge, Robert McDonald pronounced the sentencing on Monday, January 27, 2019, in a New York court several months after the verdict been reached.
Jelani Maraj was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child in a trial that lasted less than 3 weeks, TMZ reports.
“We hope that today’s verdict will help the family in the healing process,” the Nassau County D.A. told TMZ. The news of Jelani Maraj’s imprisonment first broke back in 2017.
At that time he was already found guilty of raping his stepdaughter.
