A jury has found Jelani Maraj guilty of repeatedly raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter.
Via Page Six:
Jelani Maraj appeared stone-faced as the verdict, which carries the possibility of life behind bars, was read aloud Thursday in a Long Island courtroom.
The girl, who is now 13, bravely took the stand to say Maraj repeatedly raped her in their Long Island home when he was married to her mother.
Maraj’s defense attorney attempted to convince jurors the allegations were concocted to extort millions from the “Super Bass” singer.
Minaj did not attend the trial.
The verdict comes just a day after a dismissed alternate juror told The Post he would have voted to acquit Maraj.
Jelani Maraj is scheduled to be sentenced on December 14.
