Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, sentenced for failing to register as sex offender in Los Angeles
Rapper Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, was sentenced Wednesday in Los Angeles to probation and home detention for failing to register as a sex offender.
Petty, 44, pleaded guilty last year to the federal charge of failing to register as a sex offender.
He was also ordered to pay a $55,000 fine as part of his sentence of three years' probation and a year in home detention, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
More than two decades before he married Minaj in 2019, Petty was convicted of the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1995. He served about four and a half years in prison, and as a condition of his conviction, he must register as a sex offender whenever he moves.
He and Minaj moved to California after marrying, and have a 2-year-old son.
