In the five years that has lasted the trial, time in which the brother of Minaj has been free after the rapper paid a deposit of us $ 100,000 to get him out of prison, the testimony of the girl and her little brother and a few DNA samples have been the key to the Superior Court of Long Island (U.S.) to reach its verdict.

As a definitive test to prove the violations, committed while the mother of the small was working, the Prosecutor’s office also submitted a DNA sample from the brother of Minaj collection, one of the pajamas of the small, which has served to clear up any doubt about his guilt.
As a response to these arguments, the defence of the stepfather of the child was based on the theory on manipulation of Jacqueline Robinson to pay $ 25 million to his former spouse after breaking their relationship, after that Maraj ended up admitting to the sexual assault and attributing them to their “drinking problems”. “I would like to apologize for the pain that I caused. I had a problem with excessive drinking,” said the brother of the rapper to plead not guilty during one of the last views of the trial before the verdict, that did not happen for high crimes and undisputed as that attributed to him finally.
