Given probation for failing to register as a sexual offender, NICKI MINAJ’s husband

After pleading guilty to failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California in 2020, Kenneth Petty, the husband of Nicki Minaj, received a sentence.

According to CBS News, Petty, 44, was sentenced on Wednesday, July 6, after pleading guilty to the federal offense the previous year.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Petty was given a three-year probationary period and a year of home confinement during a hearing on Wednesday in Los Angeles. In addition, he was told to pay a $55,000 fine.

According to court records, federal prosecutors initially sought to jail Petty for more than a year in June for failing to register as a sex offender. Petty will now be subject to probation and house detention in addition to a $55,000 fine.

Prosecutors claimed that after migrating to California, the defendant purposefully neglected to register as a sex offender despite having previously been found guilty of attempted rape.

Jennifer Hough, who claims she was raped by Petty, accused him and Minaj, 39, in a lawsuit she filed against them in August of trying to bully her into retracting her rape claim.

The couple, who wed in October 2019, was also charged with intentionally causing Hough severe distress, and the lawsuit claimed that Petty and Minaj had given her up to $500,000 to retract her statements.

In January, Hough reportedly abandoned the lawsuit, according to records obtained by PEOPLE.

In 1995, Petty was sentenced to four years in prison after entering a plea of guilty to the attempted rape of 16-year-old Jennifer Hough.

The 16-year-old victim of Petty’s claimed 1994 rape, Jennifer Hough, spoke up about the alleged assault in a September 2021 interview on “The Real.”

Hough reported that Petty confronted her at a bus stop, brandished a knife at her, and then brought her to a location where the alleged incident occurred.

I was aware of his desires, Hough claimed. He forced me onto the bed, and then we fought over my clothes.

Hough apparently made her way back to the school after escaping, and when security heard her version of events, Petty was detained that day.
