Kenneth Petty (43) pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender in California. The husband of Nicki Minaj (38) thus escapes the hefty prison sentence.
According to TMZ , Kenneth made a deal with the Public Prosecution Service whereby he will receive a lower sentence in exchange for his confession. Sex offenders who fail to submit mandatory registration can face up to ten years in prison plus life in probation. It is possible that he will also have to sit for a while. The prosecutors would also have pointed out in the papers that the minimum sentence is five years’ probation.
Kenneth was arrested in March of 2020 for moving to Nicki, California, but not registering as a sex offender there. He has had to do so since he was convicted in New York in 1995 for attempted rape. In addition to the registration, he must also adhere to a curfew. Earlier this year, he was allowed to be with the singer at any time of the day at the birth of his first child. The couple became parents of a son in October.
