Just In: Jury Selection Begins in Rape Trial Against Nicki Minaj’s Brother 


According to recent reports, jury selection begins this week for rape trial against 38-year-old Jelani Maraj(Long Island), Rapper Nicki Minaj’s big brother.

Maraj was arrested back in December of 2015 after he allegedly raped a young girl. He was accused of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual assault against a 12-year-old.


He has pleaded NOT guilty to the case, in which he now faces up to life in prison if convicted.

According to reports, Nicki Minaj had previously put up $100,000.00 bond in 2015 after Maraj was arrested. Maraj defense attorney told reporters that he has Minaj’s full support.

State Supreme Court Justice Robert McDonald dropped a less serious felony charge against Maraj at the request of the prosecution on Tuesday in Nassau County Court.
Maraj’s attorney comments on the case, “These are a bunch of lies. There’s a big, big motive to lie here which I can’t get into right now. But these are false accusations.”

It has been recently reported that Nicki Minaj may attend part of the trial.

 

Well, That’s TEAAAAAAAAA!
