Nicki Minaj man who killed her father pleads guilty to 2 charges + only gets 1 year in prison, according to judge
The Man Who Killed Nicki Minajhis father, Robert Marajo, pleaded guilty in a hit-and-run last year. According to reports, Charles Polevich, 71, has pleaded guilty to one count of leaving the scene of an incident without reporting and one count of tampering with physical evidence, both of which are felony charges.
Although he had to spend up to 7 years behind bars, it looks like he won’t be spending much time in prison after all. Allegedly, Judge Howard Sturim committed to condemnation Charles Polevich to just one year in prison, along with community service and revocation of his driver’s license. It is unclear why Polevich would receive such a reduced sentence for two charges. his lawyer, Marc Gann had this to say in a statement:
“Mr. Polevich’s life story is one of helping others, which is what makes this case so strange. There are no allegations of substance use or abuse as the cause of his behavior and we believe a medical heart problem contributed to the behavior from Mr Polevich Mr Polevich couldn’t feel more sorry for the loss of Mr Maraj.”
As mentioned before, Nicki Minaj, 39, lost her father, Robert Maraj, 64, February 12 in a fatal car accident in Mineola, New York. Charles Polevich was charged with beating the “Anaconda” rapper’s father in Long Island and driving off without calling 911. Robert Marajo died in hospital a day later.

Nicki Minaj did not speak publicly about the incident until May 2021, when she posted a message on her official website stating that her father had passed away “the most devastating loss of my life.” She wrote:
“I can’t quite call myself to discuss my father’s passing just yet; I can say that this has been the most devastating loss of my life. I find myself wanting to call him all the time. Especially now that he’s gone. That’s how life is funny. May his soul rest in paradise. He was much loved and will be sorely missed.”
Charles Polevich is due to appear in court on August 3 for his conviction.
