Nicki Minaj's brother charged for raping a 12year old and wife files for divorce less than a year of marriage



Nicki Minaj's brother ho just got married less than a year ago might not be smiling right now.
Not only is he being charged of raping a 12 year old , his wife of less than a year is filing for divorce.

Jelani Maraj 37, was arrested in December or allegedly raping  the girl in Long island and was subsequently charged with felony rape charges including first degree course of sexual conduct against a child and predaratory sexual assault in Nassau county New - York.


Maraj faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted and was recently offered a plea deal in the case
At the time, Maraj argued that the 12-year-old girl who accused him of rape confused him for a different man.

His legal counsel requested all evidence from the Nassau County District Attorney's Office including emails, cell phone records, texts, social media records and any other evidence relating to the minor communicating with or meeting older men.

Maraj's lawyers said: 'Our firm has a good faith basis to believe that the complainant in this case has had intimate physical contact with a man who is not the defendant in this case and who is older than 17 years of age and who may have caused there to be physical evidence of repeated vaginal and anal penetration of the complainant.'

Maraj, who faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted, is due in court in September for a conference in the case.

Last week, he was given four days to decide if he will take a plea deal, which prosecutors offered him last month, the New York Daily News reported.
Maraj, who according to his Twitter owns or owned a daycare center in Queens, New York, signed an adjournment in a Long Island court, according to the Daily News.
