Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty is back in jail. According to reports he’s been arrested by U.S. Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender.
He turned himself in Wednesday and is currently in federal custody. Apparently Petty was arrested back in November during a traffic stop in Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills PD pulled him over on November 15 and determined Petty was a registered sex 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 sex offender.
Unfortunately he still didn’t register after that and now the feds are in on the case. He was indicted in federal court for failing to register. According to TMZ, he’s scheduled to face a judge late Wednesday afternoon. If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, Kenneth faces up to 10 years in prison.
As we’ve reported, Kenneth was convicted in 1995 for first-degree attempted rape. He served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender.
Back in October Nicki announced to her fans that she and Petty had gotten hitched. The duo reportedly got their marriage license at a Beverly Hills courthouse in June around the same time they moved to California.
