The victim previously has alleged that she was repeatedly raped and sodomized over the course of an eight month period.
“He is choosing to go to trial because he is not guilty of these allegations and has faith in our system of justice,” Maraj's new lawyer, David Schwartz, shared .
According to the report, the pre-trial hearings will begin in less than two weeks.
As the legal process has continued, it was falsely reported that Minaj paid for her brother’s bond when in fact it was their mother who put up her house and two $50,000 promissory notes to get her son out of jail. Maraj’s wife filed for divorce amidst the case’s proceedings.
