(AllHipHop News) Nicki Minaj's brother will learn his fate in a case alleging he raped his stepdaughter.
Jelani Maraj's ex-wife Jacqueline Robinson and her daughter claim Maraj started molesting her when she was just 11 years old.
During the trial, Jelani Maraj's defense lawyers claimed that the rape charges were bogus.
The defense claimed semen found on the girl's pajamas had been planted by Robinson to bolster her daughter's rape claims.
“It’s about money, it’s about revenge against that family,” Jelani Maraj's lawyer claimed during his closing arguments. “She needed the wedding before bringing down the master plan and taking all of Nicki’s money and ruining his life.”
The girl, who is now 14-years-old, testified that Jelani Maraj forced her to perform oral, vaginal and anal sex during the trial.
"She told you how much it hurt, how scared she was, how much she cried,” Nassau Assistant DA Emma Slan said in her closing arguments. “You know a little girl is not capable of making that up.”
If Jelani Maraj is convicted, he faces 15 years to life in prison for the rape.
