The man who killed Nicki Minaj‘s father, Robert Maraj, in a hit-and-run has pleaded guilty.
Charles Polevich pled guilty to one count of leaving the scene of an incident without reporting and one count of tampering with physical evidence … both felonies.
He was facing up to 7 years behind bars on the felony count alone, but it looks like he won’t get nearly that long of a sentence. Judge Howard Sturim committed to sentencing Polevich to no more than one year in jail, along with community service and suspension of his driver’s license.
As we reported … Robert Maraj died at the age of 64 … after being struck in a hit-and-run accident back in February 2021.
Nicki later opened up about the tragedy on her website saying … “I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life.” She added, he was very loved and will be very missed.
Polevich is due back in court August 3 for his sentencing.
