Jelani Maraj, 37, was arrested last December for allegedly raping the girl in Long Island, New York, on more than one occasion in 2015.
He was charged with felony rapy charges including first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child and predatory sexual assault in Nassau County, New York, and faces 15 years to life in prison if he is convicted.
On August 18, Maraj's wife, Jacqueline Robinson, filed divorce papers in Nassau County, just days before the couple would have celebrated their one-year anniversary.
Robinson has not publicly commented on the rape charges Maraj is facing.
But the divorce is labeled 'Uncontested Matrimonial', meaning both parties agree to divorce and may have already reached an agreement over the division of their assets and property. The case is still pending in New York court.
