Nicki Minaj’s Father’s Killer Pleads Guilty To Two Counts Of Murder And Faces Prison Time
Nicki Minaj’s family is on the verge of receiving justice. Robert Maraj’s killer, Charles Polevich, entered a plea, according to TMZ, more than a year after his death.
The 71-year-old admitted to leaving the scene of an incident without reporting it and tampering with physical evidence, both felonies.
Polevich was facing a maximum sentence of seven years in prison, but Judge Howard Sturim has agreed to sentence him to only one year. “No more than one year in jail, along with community service and suspension of his driver’s license.”
According to Page Six, the motorist struck Maraj on February 12th, 2021, when he was crossing a street in Mineola. Polevich stepped out of his car and asked the victim if he was okay before fleeing the scene without offering any assistance or calling the cops.
Carol Maraj, Nicki Minaj’s mother, filed a $150 million lawsuit against Polevich in Nassau County’s state Supreme Court in March of last year. Ben Crump and Paul Napoli, attorneys at the time, stated, “[Polevich] was not only irresponsible and negligent but more concerned about running away and hiding than seeking help.”
“Polevich’s behaviour was criminal, cowardly, and immoral. We will hold him responsible for his reckless actions that led to Robert Maraj’s death!”
