Time is ticking.

As we reported in July, Nicki Minaj's brother Jelani Maraj was offered a plea deal in his child rape case after his DNA matched semen found on the 12-year-old alleged victim's clothing.

The accuser also told police Maraj repeatedly raped and sodomized her between April 1 and November 30, 2015.

Now, Maraj has four days to decide whether he will take a plea deal of 15 years to life, the same deal prosecutors offered last month.

If he doesn't take it and is found guilty, he could face life in bars.

Back in April, the Anaconda rapper's brother was officially indicted with the crime.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

On Friday, former Real Housewives star Lauri Peterson's son — Josh Waring — plead not guilty to 12 charges in his attempted murder case.

As we reported in June, the troubled reality TV star was arrested after he allegedly shot Daniel Lopez in the torso around 2:30 a.m. at a sober living home. After the altercation, Waring attempted to flee the scene in a stolen BMW SUV where he crashed, tried to escape on foot, and eventually surrendered himself to authorities.

He was charged with three counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a firearm and one count each of discharging a firearm at an inhabited dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm, unlawful taking of a vehicle, evading a peace officer/reckless driving, hit and run with property damage, resisting a public or peace officer, and battery.

His current bail is set at $1 million.

Back in May, the Bravo personality pled not guilty to drug and forgery charges. He's also been involved in various drug cases between 2008 and 2016.

During season three of RHOC, Josh sought treatment at a rehab facility.

We just hope justice is brought down on anyone who breaks the law.
