Nicki Minaj attends the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on August 27, 2017 in Inglewood, California.

Whenever we lose a family member close to us, it’s often so hard to get over it. But what if you lose that family member to a hit and run then on top of that, the guilty party is only given 1 year of jail time even when he tried to cover it up.

That’s what exactly happened to Nicki Minaj’s family!!!

According to TMZ, Charles Polevich, who runs a drilling and water purification business, hit and killed Robert Minaj, 64, while walking on a road in Mineola, NY, last February.

After briefly asking if Mr. Minaj was ok, he took off home and parked his Volvo in his garage and put a tarp on it! He later pled guilty to two charges.

He was sentenced to a year of jail time, a $5,000 fine and a suspension of his driver’s license for 6 months. Do you think that was fair? Condolences the Minaj Family and Friends
