Nassau County Supreme Court Judge Robert McDonald used very strong language to condemn Maraj for repeatedly raping his stepdaughter who is now 13-years-old.

“My view is that you ruined this child. You raped this child. You raped her over and over again,” McDonald stated.

Maraj was convicted for predatory sexual assault and acting in a manner injurious to a child two years ago.

Nicki was not present at the sentencing, but her brother’s lawyer read a 2016 letter in which the “ rapper pleaded for a lighter sentence calling her brother the “most patient, gentle, genuine, giving selfless man I know.”

At the sentencing, Maraj maintained his innocence while stating,

“I’d like to apologize for the pain that I caused. I had an excessive drinking problem.” I’m just asking for mercy from the court.”

Maraj claims the story was concocted to extort money from his famous sister.
