Jelani Maraj, 37, was arrested last December for allegedly
raping the girl in Long Island, New York, on more than one occasion
in 2015.He faces 15 years to life in prison if he is convicted.
According to UK Daily Mail,on August 18, Marajâ€™s wife, Jacqueline Robinson, filed divorce papers in Nassau County, just days before the couple would have celebrated their one-year anniversary.
When Maraj was arrested in December 2015, Minaj, 33, posted his
$100,000 bond. The bond was guaranteed by
Minajâ€™s two homes she owns in nearby Baldwin,
At the time, Maraj argued that the 12-year-old girl who accused him of rape confused him for a different man.
Last week, he was given four days to decide if he will take aÂ 15 year plea deal, which prosecutors offered him last month, the New York Daily News reported.
