Nicki Minaj’s husband sentenced to a year of home confinement for failing to register as SEX offender

In Los Angeles The musician Nicki Minaj’s husband was given a one-year home confinement term on Wednesday for failing to register as a sex offender, according to a federal prosecutor’s office official.

According to a spokesperson for the Central District of California U.S. Attorney’s Office, Kenneth Petty was also given a three-year probationary period and a $55,000 fine. The company has nothing more to say.

In September, Petty entered a guilty plea to one count of failing to register as a sex offender.

After being found guilty of first-degree attempted rape in New York in 1995, when he was 16 years old, court records show that he was obliged to register as a sex offender.

Petty relocated to California in July 2019, and investigators discovered he hadn’t registered during a traffic stop in Beverly Hills, according to officials. In March of 2020, he was charged.

A request for comment made Wednesday night did not immediately elicit a response from Petty’s counsel.

In a June sentencing position, prosecutors had suggested that he should receive a prison sentence of 15 months, or just over a year.

After relocating to California, the prosecution claimed that he purposefully neglected to register. They mentioned a six-bedroom, seven-bathroom property in Calabasas with a pool in their letter and added that home confinement would not be acceptable.

Following his conviction for the attempted rape in New York, Petty spent over four years in prison.

In an Instagram post from October 2019, Nicki Minaj acknowledged that she and Petty were married.
