The perpetrator of the accident that led to the death of Nicki Minaj’s father has appeared before the court receiving a sentence of one year in prison from the judge. This has greatly upset Nici’s mother who is now a widow.
Charles Polevic, 71, is accused of crashing into Robert Maraj when he was walking down the street and leaving him there on a snowy day.
Businessman Polevich got out of the car and asked the injured party if he was well and got wet and his Volvo at home as if nothing had happened.
He was charged with covering up evidence because he hid his car. Maraj died at the hospital the day after the accident. The judge sentenced him to one year in prison and community service and a patent suspension.
Nicki’s mother Carol Maraj says she is not happy with the sentence.
“Given the severity of the defendant’s conduct, we disagree with the sentencing commitment from the court,” Nassau County District Attorney’s office spokesperson Brendan Brosh said in a statement obtained by the Associated Press.
Nicki Minaj after calling his father’s loss “the most devastating loss of my life” often thinks as if he will pick up the phone and call him.
“I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way, ”she wrote on her website after he was killed. “May his soul rest in paradise. He was very loved & will be very missed. ”
