Charles Polevich, the person who killed Nicki Minaj’s father Robert Maraj in a February 2021 hit-and-run, has been sentenced to 1 12 months in jail.

Polevich, now 71, struck Maraj, 64, whereas he was strolling within the village of Mineola on Long Island, New York.

Using safety footage, Nassau County police had been capable of observe down Polevich’s car.

“He’s absolutely aware of what happened,” Nassau Police Homicide Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick instructed CNN. “He got out of the car and he looked at the deceased, got into his car and made the conscious decision to leave. Instead of dialing 911, instead of calling an ambulance for the man, he went and went home and secreted his vehicle.”

Three days after the incident Polevich was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an incident involving the dying of an individual and tampering with or suppressing bodily proof. In May of this 12 months, he pleaded responsible to each expenses.

At the time of the plea, Judge Howard Sturim mentioned he’d sentence Polevich to “no more than one year in jail,” which pissed off the District Attorney’s workplace. “Given the severity of the defendant’s conduct, we disagree with the sentencing commitment from the court,” a spokesperson mentioned on the time. Judge Sturim has now adopted by on that pledge.

Marc Gann, an legal professional for Polevich, mentioned in an announcement, “Mr. Polevich is extremely remorseful for any role he may have played in Mr. Maraj’s death.
