Kenneth Petty, Nicki Minaj’s new husband has been arrested for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California.
Back in 1995, Petty was convicted of first-degree attempted rape, serving 4 years in a NY state prison, then having to register as a sex offender. When him and Nicki moved to Cali in July, he was supposed to register there.
During a traffic stop in November, the failure to register was revealed. Petty was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond, being charged with failure to register.
He has now been indicted in federal court on the same charges. On Wednesday, Petty turned himself into the feds. In court he plead not guilty. Prosecutors wanted Petty placed on house arrested but his attorney objected so instead, he will be required to wear an ankle monitor and have a curfew.
He has another hearing scheduled for March 23
