Maraj, 38, was found guilty on Thursday of predatory assault on a child younger than 13 years old. His lawyer has said he will appeal the judgment.

Maraj is set to be sentenced on 14 December.

The No Frauds hitmaker has never commented on the case publicly, but she did help to secure her brother's freedom following his arrest by putting up two of her homes for collateral as she covered his $100,000 (£75,400) bail.

At 0640 GMT, the S&P BSE Sensex rose 0.1 percent at 33,251 while the broader NSE Nifty gained 0.06 percent to 10,309. Foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) net purchased shares worth Rs 461.47 crore Tuesday, as per provisional data.

Carol Maraj testified her son's then-wife made a comment she perceived as an extortion threat while driving her to court following her son's arrest on December 1, 2015.

Prosecutors alleged during the trial that Maraj started abusing the victim when she was 11 years old, and raped her repeatedly between April and November 2015 while her mother was at work. He was charged with the crime in 2015 and found guilty at Nassau County court, New York, this week. The girl's younger brother also testified at the trial that he witnessed one assault.

"Justice demanded that this defendant be held accountable for these heinous acts and we are thankful to the jury for their careful deliberation", Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said in a statement to People.

Mick Cash, general secretary of the RMT Union, said: "These strikes are about rail safety and accessibility pure and simple".

She also told the jury Maraj warned her to keep the abuse a secret, Brosh confirms.

The prosecutors also said DNA evidence found on the girl's pyjama trousers was linked one-in-291 billion match with defendant Maraj.

Juror Arthur Naclerio, 67, of Massapequa, said the victim's testimony was the most convincing piece of evidence. "The amount of evidence we have that wasn't allowed in this case is unbelievable".

James R. Ray III, the previous defence attorney in the case, was sacked for demanding $25 million from Maraj following his arrest to settle a potential lawsuit. We're told Minaj never planned to take the stand, and her bro's legal team telling news outlets she was on their witness list was simply false. He said they were both partially unclothed.
