Nicki Minaj’s husband was sentenced to probation after failing to register as a s*x offender



Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, has been sentenced after pleading guilty to failing to register as a * offender in California in 2020.

CBS News reported that 44-year-old Petty was sentenced on Wednesday, July 6, after pleading guilty to the federal charge last year.

During a hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Petty was sentenced to three years probation and a year of in-home detention, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He was also ordered to pay a $55,000 fine.

In June, federal prosecutors initially wanted to sentence Petty to over a year in jail for failing to register as a * offender, according to court documents. Along with the probation and home detention he now faces, Petty will also have to pay a $55,000 fine.

“Having previously been convicted of attempted *, defendant knowingly failed to register as a * offender upon moving to California,” prosecutors said.

In August, Petty’s alleged * victim, Jennifer Hough, filed a lawsuit against him and Minaj, 39, in which she accused the pair of attempting to intimidate her into recanting her * accusation.

The lawsuit also accused Petty and Minaj, who married in October 2019, of intentional infliction of emotional distress and alleged that the couple had offered Hough up to $500,000 to recant her claims.

The suit was then dropped by Hough in January, according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Petty served four years in jail in 1995 after pleading guilty to the attempted * of Jennifer Hough, who was then 16 years old.

In a September 2021 appearance on “The Real,” Jennifer Hough, the 16-year-old girl Petty allegedly raped, spoke out about the alleged 1994 incident.

Hough claimed Petty approached her at a bus stop, pulled a knife on her, and led her to a house, where the alleged incident occurred.

“I knew what he wanted,” Hough alleged. “He pushed me down on the bed, we wrestled for my clothes.”

After allegedly escaping and making her way back to school, Hough told her side of what happened to security, and Petty was arrested that day.
