Rapper Nicki Minaj's hubby Kenneth Petty has been arrested by U.S. Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender.
Mr. Petty was arrested and convicted for first-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl back in 1995. He spent 4 years in a NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender upon release.
According to TMZ, at the time he turned himself into the U.S. Marshals and was released on a $20,000 bond. He was charged with failing to register as a sex offender.
Petty moved to California in July 2019 and according to law enforcement when he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November that's when his legal troubles started. During the traffic stop officers determined Petty was a registered sex offender in New York state but had not registered in California..as required by law.
It appears Petty did not follow through with the registration requirement and If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, he faces up tp 10 years in prison.
