American’s queen of rap Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty has been arrested by U.S. Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender according to TMZ.
Kenneth Petty was in federal custody Wednesday after he turned himself into the Marshals. Beverly Hills Police Department made a traffic stop 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.
It appears he still didn’t check in after that because now the feds are in on the case. He was indicted in federal court for the same thing … failing to register.
Kenneth’s rap sheet includes a 1995 conviction 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.
If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, Kenneth faces up to 10 years in prison.
Nicki Minaj, 36, became Mrs Petty after her marriage to Kenneth Petty, 41, on Monday, October 21, 2019.
