Nicki Minaj’s Brother Sentenced to 25 years to life for rape.
Nicki Minaj’s Brother won’t be seeing the light of day for a long time after his court appearance today. A Judge sentenced Jelani Maraj Monday, January 27, 2020, several months after a guilty verdict was reached.
Maraj, who is Nicki Minaj’s older brother, was charged with raping his then 11-year old stepdaughter in 2015. Maraj was found guilty during his 2017 after a short 3-week trial.
Nicki was allegedly supposed to testify on her brother’s behalf at the trial, but that never happened. She did, however, visit her brother while he awaited trial, which she says was in support of their mother.
Nicki was in the news herself this weekend after she and her new husband ran into her EX Meek Mill. TMZ obtained a video of what appeared to be Nicki and Her husband, Kenneth Petty, getting into an argument with Meek. In the video, you can hear Nicki talking crazy before her husband calls Meek a P**sy, and Meek returns the slur.
Luckily the argument ended without anyone being hurt or arrested. Coincidentally, Nicki Minaj’s Brother isn’t the only convicted rapist in her family. Her husband was convicted of rape when he was just 16 years old and is a level 2 registered sex offender.
Nicki defended her beau, stating that the incident happened when he was 15 and in a relationship with a 16-year-old girl. However, none of that erases that fact she is now associated with two convicted rapists.
What do you guys think about Nick Minaj’s Brother being sentenced to 25 to life? Was that a fair punishment, or should rapists get the death penalty?
