Nicki Minaj's Brother Convicted Of Raping 11-Year-Old Stepdaughter

Maraj was still facing a felony second-degree charge of sexual conduct and a misdemeanor count of acting in a manner likely to injure a child, and on Thursday (09Nov17) he was convicted of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

Maraj was accused of repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl at his home in Baldwin, a Long Island suburb.

His trial kicked off at Nassau County Supreme Court in Long Island on 19 October (17), when his attorney David Schwartz accused the child's mother, Jelani's estranged wife Jacqueline Robinson, of setting him up as part of a $25 million (£19 million) extortion plot, just four months after they Wednesday.

He was arrested in connection with the case back in December 2015. Maraj, 38, sat in court stoned face as the verdict was read out. He is now being held at the Nassau County Jail until his upcoming sentencing.

A weakening rupee, which depreciated by 39 paise to 65.07 against the dollar during the day, too dampened investor sentiment. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.1 per cent while Japan's Nikkei lost 1.0 per cent.

Semen found on the victim's pajamas was crucial evidence.

The assaults reportedly began in April 2015, about four months before Maraj married the children's mother.

She told jurors that he had previously treated her like a daughter but told her that the abuse was her fault and that she "wanted it to happen".

"The amount of evidence that we had that wasn't allowed in this case is unbelievable", the Garden City lawyer added.

Billie's cellphone was found in a dumpster hours after she disappeared and her auto was found in a nearby street five days later. But Brown told agents he blacked out and had no recollection of his actions for several days after that, the release said.

In her testimony, Maraj's former wife denied an extortion plot and denied forcing her children to go along with a made-up tale of abuse. We're told Minaj never planned to take the stand, and her bro's legal team telling news outlets she was on their witness list was simply false.

She said Maraj's wife told her: "It's gonna take lots of money to get out of this one". The woman later fired him as her attorney.

The girl's brother, now 10, testified that he saw Maraj's "private parts" touching his sister after he walked in on the two of them in 2015 partially clothed.

Maraj is set to be sentenced on 14 December.
