For the past few months, there were no new updates on the story, until yesterday when it was reported Maraj was indicted on April 4 by a grand jury in Nassau County, Long Island and could face up to 15 years to life in prison if he is convicted. He is facing charges such as felony predatory assault against a child, felony sexual conduct against a child under the age of 13 and endangering the welfare of a child.

Maraj was in court on Tuesday, pled not guilty and was released on $100, 000 bond.

Nicki has yet to speak publicly about the situation.
