Sources say Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, was arrested in LA on Wednesday, March 4, after he failed to register as a sex offender in California.
TMZ reports prosecutors wanted Mr. Petty placed on house arrest, but instead, he has been ordered to wear an ankle monitor and adhere to a curfew. He’s already surrendered his passport, and his traveling will be restricted to Southern California only.
Now you know each state has its own registration guidelines and California is a state that requires registration. If a sex offender moves residences, he or she must register within five working days at the law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over his or her residence, according to California’s Megan’s Law. Kenneth moved to California in July 2019.
Furthermore, he “can’t use drugs, even marijuana from legal dispensaries in L.A.”
If ya didn’t know, Kenneth’s criminal history goes all the way back to a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape, which stemmed from an incident with a 16-year-old girl in 1994. He served time in New York state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender in the state .
His next hearing scheduled for March 23. There has been no response from Nicki and her team.
