Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty has been arrested by United States Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender, TMZ reports.
Kenneth Petty was in federal custody Wednesday, and according to reports, he turned himself into the Marshals.
Petty moved to California in July 2019, but according to law enforcement he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November and that’s when his legal troubles started.
Bev Hills PD made a traffic stop on November 15 and determined Petty was a registered s*x offender in New York state but had not registered in California, as required.
He was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond. The L.A. County D.A. charged him for failing to register as a s*x offender.
Kenneth’s rap sheet includes a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. He served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a s*x offender.
If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, Kenneth faces up to 10 years in prison.
