Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 10 (ANI): Rapper Nicki Minaj's older brother, Jelani Maraj was convicted, on Thursday, of repeatedly raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter in their Long Island home.

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

Maraj, who long denied the allegations, was tried in Nassau County, New York.

The 38-year-old was first arrested in connection with the case in early December 2015.

He faces 25 years to life behind bars when he is sentenced next month.

His lawyer says he will appeal. (ANI)
