Jurors unable to reach verdict in Nicki Minaj’s brother’s child rape case: “not enough evidence”’

Nicki Minaj’s brother might soon be free AF as jurors have been unable to reach a verdict in his child rape trial. 



On Wednesday, deliberations in the sexual assault case against the “Anaconda” emcee’s oldest sibling, Jelani Maraj, began in Nassau County. 
As previously reported on Cheekywiki, Nicki’s 38-year-old bro is accused of repeatedly molesting his then 11-year-old ex-stepdaughter, while her mother was at work, as often as four times a week over the course of several months throughout 2015. 
During the first day of deliberations, the jury—comprised of eight men and four women—was unable to reach a verdict in the case, after reviewing evidence against Jelani which consisted of testimony from both the alleged victim, her 10-year-old brother—who claims to have walked his sister being raped—as well as the defendant’s DNA in the groin area of the girl’s pants. 

John Labau, an alternate juror who was relived of his duties yesterday, says he believes the “Only” rapper’s brother “did something” to the pre-teenaged complainant, but felt he wasn’t able to send him to jail…

“I really do think he did something to her, but based on the evidence I just can’t convict him,” John explained to Newsday outside the Nassau County Courthouse.
He added that its seemed unbelievable Jelani’s ex-wife, Jacquline Robinson, coached her children to lie about the alleged assault as a way to extort $25 MILLION from Nicki Minaj’s family, despite the defense team’s accusations. 
Jelani is charged with predatory sexual assault against a child, which carries a maximum punishment of life in prison, and with second-degree course of sexual conduct and acting in a manner likely to injure a child. He’s free on $100,000 bail–which was funded by Nicki. 
If convicted, the “Starships” spitter’s brother could face up to life in prison.
