Nicki Minaj's brother found guilty of raping 11-year-old stepdaughter

The brother of rapper Nicki Minaj was convicted Thursday of predatory sexual assault after being charged with repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl at his Long Island home.

Maraj, who has denied the accusations, was found guilty of predatory sexual assault on the child at his Long Island home by jurors at Nassau County courtroom in NY on Thursday (9 November), CBS News has reported.

According to People Magazine, after a three-week-trial, he has also been convicted of endangering the welfare of a child.

Maraj's defence team claimed that the DNA was planted by the girl's mother, the defendant's wife, who was using the abuse allegations to try and extort millions from her husband. Maraj was arrested in December 2015 on multiple child rape charges. He was handcuffed and taken into custody following the verdict and now potentially faces 25 years to life in prison. He is now in Nassau County Jail and is set to be sentenced next month.

Waymo Will Debut Driverless Cars Within "A Few Months"
Google's self-driving auto project started in 2009 in the tech giant's secret "X" lab under the company's co-founder Sergey Brin. I Am Not An Engineer, but it strikes me that a commercial taxi is one of the hardest things for a self-driving vehicle to do.

The victim's younger brother allegedly discovered the abuse, walking in while Maraj was assaulting the girl.

Semen found on the victim's pajamas was crucial evidence. "The amount of evidence we have that wasn't allowed in this case is unbelievable".

The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault, and is not identifying the girl's mother in order to protect her daughter's identity. He said Maraj confronted him a short time later, slapping him several times across the face and telling him he would never see his mother again if he told anyone what he had witnessed. The prosecutor told the jurors it would be up to them to determine whether the testimony of the two children was credible. Sentencing is to take place December 14.

James R. Ray III, the previous defence attorney in the case, was sacked for demanding $25 million from Maraj following his arrest to settle a potential lawsuit. He said they were both partially unclothed.
