Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, was indicted on rape charges back in April.

Although he has maintained his innocence, in court in on Tuesday (July 26), the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office revealed that his DNA is a match to the semen found on the clothing of a 12-year-old he has been accused of repeatedly raping, per the prosecution.

Via Bossip:

 

“…A DNA profile, a partial profile matching the defendant or consistent with the defendant, your honor, to the point in the hundreds of billionths of chance of it being any other individual, was discovered in the…pants of the complainant in this case, and also tested positive indicating the presence of semen,” Anthony Pirri, the assistant district attorney told the judge at a hearing July 26 in Nassau County Supreme Court’s sex crimes division.

According to reports, the 12-year-old alleged victim told police that Maraj repeatedly raped and sodomized her in between April 1 and Nov. 30, 2015. Cops arrested him the day after the last alleged rape.

He is due back in court in August, and the case is still expected to go to trial in November.
