Nassau County Court on Tuesday indicted Nicki Minaj‘s brother Jelani Maraj for raping a 12-year-old-girl.
Maraj was arrested by Long Island police last year after the 12-year-old alleged he had been raping her for several months.
Maraj was arraigned on December 3 on charges of first-degree rape and first-degree conduct of sexual intercourse with a child.
When Maraj first appeared at the sex crimes division, he pleaded not guilty to all charges and was released on $100,000 bond from Nassau County Jail the next day.
Maraj faces charges of felony predatory sexual assault against a child, felony sexual conduct against a child under age of 13, sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
According to reports, the grand jury found sufficient evidence to charge Maraj after deliberating for about a month.
The final decision was made on April 4 according to court records.
