Polevich admitted leaving the scene of the February 2021 accident that fatally injured Robert Maraj as he walked along a road in Mineola.
Polevich initially got out of his car and looked at the injured man on the ground, but then drove off, didn’t call 911, garaged his car and covered it with a tarp, authorities said. Polevich pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence by concealing the car. Maraj, 64, died at a hospital the next day.
Judge Howard Sturim said Polevich would get ‘no more than one year in jail,’ along with community service and a suspended license. The 71-year-old is due to be sentenced August 3.

‘I was angry, very, very angry,’ Maraj said of seeing Polevich in court. ‘I’ll say what I have to say at sentencing.’
In interviews years ago, Nicki described a troubled relationship with her father. But she later said he had changed.
After his death, she wrote about wishing she could pick up the phone and talk to him.
‘He was very loved & will be very missed,’ she wrote.
Detectives used surveillance video from the neighborhood to track the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run crash to Polevich’s home in the 160 block of Roselle Street in Mineola.
