Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender and now facing up to 10 years behind bars!
But what really happened?!
As Nicki Minaj is in newlywed bliss, her husband is now behind bars for violating the terms of his status as a sex offender this past Wednesday.
According to his federal indictment, Kenneth Petty was charged by the U.S. Marshals with failing to register as a sex offender in Los Angeles, where he was staying with his wife Nicki from July through November 2019.
Back in 1995, Petty was convicted of attempted rape in the first degree back and under the terms of his sentence, he is required to always register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act when he moves from state to state.
The feds didn’t waste no time apprehending Petty, his indictment was filed less than a week ago. No one can confirm if Minaj was present when Petty turned himself in. A spokesman from U.S. Attorney’s Office did confirm that Petty was in custody and is scheduled to be arraigned in L.A. this afternoon.
According to court papers, LAPD arrested and charged Petty with failing to register as a sex offender last month in California. He pled not guilty and was released on $20,000 bail and was due in court this week in the case. Come to find out, he still failed to register and that’s when the feds took action.
According to federal statutes, this felony charge could put Petty back behind bars for up to 10 years.
Petty’s been with Minaj’s for the last two years now, traveling all around the country and the world with her. They were just spotted last week in Trinidad where he caused some major ruckus.
Many think this is what really put the FEDS on Petty’s back!
No comment from Minaj yet!
