Ms. Maraj you pled guilty on February 18, 2016 to one count of first degree manslaughter and one count of tampering with evidence. You are here this morning to be sentenced for those crimes. Have you reviewed the presentence report?
Nicki- Yes I have your honor.
Judge- Did you discuss it with your lawyer?
Nicki- Yes your honor
Judge- I will now proceed with the position of sentencing. Ms. Maraj, would you like to say anything on you behalf?
Nicki- Yes you honor. I would just like to say that I am sorry to the victims family and my family. I am by no means a criminal and what occurred on the night of October 17th was a complete accident and I would do anything to take it back. I'm sorry,I can't...
I took the tissue from my lawyer and dabbed under my eyes and nose. I folded my piece of paper back up and sat back down. I was to much of an emotional wreck to continue.
Judge- Alright, does anyone else wish to present a closing statement before sentencing?
Lawyers- No your honor
