State Supreme Court Justice Robert McDonald told Maraj in Nassau County Court, “She was 11 years old and you did this.”

He then turned to the victim and said, “I sat there and I believed every word you said.”

Jelani Maraj’s lawyer David Schwartz said he plans to appeal the judge’s decision.

Good luck with that…
