Jelani Maraj has been handed 25 years to life for “ruining” his 11-year-old step-daughter.
Nassau County Supreme Court Judge Robert McDonald used the strong language to condemn Nicki Minaj’s brother for repeatedly raping the young girl who is now 13-years-old. “My view is that you ruined this child. You raped this child. You raped her over and over again,” McDonald stated.
The lengthy sentence comes after Maraj was convicted for predatory sexual assault and acting in a manner injurious to a child two years ago.
Nicki was not present at the sentencing, but her brother’s attorney read a 2016 letter in which the “Anaconda” rapper pleaded for a lighter sentence calling her brother the “most patient, gentle, genuine, giving selfless man I know.”
At the sentencing, Maraj maintained his innocence while stating, “I’d like to apologize for the pain that I caused. I had an excessive drinking problem.” He added that he’s “just asking for mercy from the court.”
Maraj claims the story was concocted to extort his famous sister.
