Nicki Minaj‘s brother, Jelani Maraj, has been convicted of rape after a monthlong trial.

The guilty verdict was handed down in Long Island after the jury deliberated for less than a day.  Maraj was charged with predatory sexual assault on a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

Prosecutors had accused 38-year-old Maraj of repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl while her mother was at work in 2015.

Maraj’s defense team alleged the victim was trying to extort Maraj to get his famous sister to pay $25 million.

He’ll be sentenced next month, and faces 25 years to life in prison.
