Jelani Maraj, the sibling of rapper Nicki Minaj, was condemned Monday morning to 25 years to life in jail for over and over assaulting an 11-year-old young lady at his Long Island home, a representative for the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office disclosed to NBC News.
Maraj was indicted in November 2017 of savage rape against a youngster and imperiling the welfare of a kid.
Investigators looked for the most extreme sentences of 25 years to life in jail.
The judge condemned Maraj to 25 years to life on the primary check and 364 days on the subsequent tally, as per the head prosecutor’s office.
These sentences will run simultaneously.
The young lady, who was 14 when she affirmed said was more than once attacked more than eight months in 2015 at Maraj’s home in Baldwin while her mom was grinding away.
Examiners said DNA proof upheld the charges. The young lady’s more youthful sibling affirmed that he saw one ambush.
Maraj’s legal advisors said the assault charges were prepared by the young lady’s mom as a major aspect of a plan to get Nicki Minaj to pay $25 million in quiet cash.
Maraj’s lawyer bid conviction in 2018, guaranteeing that there was jury unfortunate behavior. The judge decided in October that the guard didn’t meet the vital weight of evidence.
Maraj said in court Monday that he had a liquor issue and requested “another opportunity.”
One of his lawyers said he experienced medical problems including hypertension, gout and iron deficiency and mentioned the base sentence of 10 years to life.
Maraj’s redrafting lawyer, Stephen Scaring, said he intends to claim the judge’s choice.
‘Requested another opportunity’
Maraj’s lawyer requested the base sentence of 10 years to life and says they intend to offer the judge’s choice.
Maraj requested another opportunity in court on Monday – he said he was experiencing a liquor issue and his lawyer claims he was experiencing other medical problems like hypothermia, gout and iron deficiency.
