A grand jury has decided to indict Jelani Maraj of allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl.
The brother of Nicki Minaj was accused of the heinous crime in December of last year. After deliberating for about a month, the grand jury has charged Jelani with felony predatory sexual assault against a child, felony sexual conduct against a child under age 13, sexual misconduct against a child, and endangering the welfare of a child.
He faces 15-25 years in prison.
Poor Nicki. It’s one thing for a family to deal with accusations — but the fact that there’s enough evidence for a jury to move forward with an indictment is substantially different.
