Nicki Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj who is charged with sexual assault of his 12-year-old stepdaughter may be in a messy situation as child abuse expert confirm new evidence against him.
According to graphic testimony, the medical records of the 12-year-old victim who is Maraj stepdaughter suggest she was penetrated.
On Friday, Dr. Aaron Miller, a child abuse expert testified as a witness for the prosecution, saying the girl’s medical exam serves as proof that she was subjected to sex, Page Six reported.
‘I can say with a reasonable degree of certainty that [the girl’s] medical exam can prove penetration,’ Miller said on the stand as he showed the jury examination photos at Nassau County Supreme Court.
But in cross-examination, Maraj’s attorney David Schwartz implied the medical evidence could have been caused by the girl, now 14, sleeping with another teenager, according to Page Six.
“Assume the patient has a boyfriend who is 15 and she’s having sex for six months,” Schwartz asked the doctor. “Are those findings consistent with having sex with a 15-year-old boyfriend?”
The judge did not allow the doctor to answer the speculative question, citing speculation.
The prosecution claims Maraj raped the girl as often as four times a week in 2015, soon after he married her mother Jacqueline Robinson.
At the trial’s opening arguments on Thursday, Schwartz told jurors that Robinson forced her way to marry the accused so that she could try to get money out of his famous sister.
He added that Robinson forced the alleged victim and her younger brother to lie to authorities about the rape allegations as part of her extortion plan.
Schwartz said Robinson allegedly told Minaj: ‘I can make the charges go away for $25million.’
Nicki Minaj is expected to take the stand at her brother’s child rape trial and tell jurors that the mother of the alleged victim did offer to make the accusations disappear in exchange for money.
