  • Nicki Minaj's brother found guilty in Long Island child sex assault case

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.

Only five percent of users went above 140 characters during the test, and only 2 percent ever went north of 190 characters. Now every Twitter user - from first-day users to President Donald Trump - will have twice the room to share their thoughts.

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.

Apple Is Moving Forward on an Augmented Reality Headset
Magic Leap , which has been quietly working on its own augmented reality hardware, is thought to be targeting consumers instead. That new operating system, internally called "rOS" for "reality operating system", is based on iOS.

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.
