He faces life in prison.

Nicki Minaj’s brother has been found guilty in his trial for child sexual assault, so he now faces 25-years-to-life in prison. After a three-week-long trail, a jury determined Jelani Maraj was guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

Maraj’s accuser was his former stepdaughter. She claimed that he repeatedly sexually assaulted her throughout 2015 while her mother was at work. The girl, who is now 14, testified during the trial.

The girl’s brother also testified that he caught Jelani in the act and was slapped repeatedly for it. “I thought it wasn’t right. It looked weird to me, so I ran upstairs,” he said from the stand, according to Page Six.

The now 10-year-old boy claimed that Maraj threatened to take his sister away if he revealed what he saw. “Jelani said I wouldn’t see her again if I told on him,” he said. “His face was kind of mad.”
