After a grueling 3 weeks trail, Nicki Minaj’s Brother, Jenali Manaj has been found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child. The guilty verdict was established just a few hours ago according to TMZ.
Jenali Manaj faces up to 25 years behind bars following this verdict. His sentencing will hold on the 14th of December. His lawyers are however claiming that they will appeal the verdict.
Manaj was charged in December 2015 for repeatedly raping an 11 year old girl in his Long Island home.
The girl who is now 14, testified that she was repeatedly assaulted over eight months in 2015 at Maraj’s home in Baldwin. Prosecutors also claim that DNA evidence supports the allegations. The girl’s younger brother testified that he witnessed one assault.
Maraj’s lawyers however refuted the claims, roping the girl’s mother in a blackmail scheme that was set up to get Nicki Minaj to pay $25 million to buy their silence.
