Federal prosecutors hope to sentence Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, to over a year in prison for failing to register as a sex offender, according to court documents reviewed by Media Take Out.
“Having previously been convicted of attempted rape, the defendant knowingly failed to register as a sex offender when he moved to California,” prosecutors said in a recently filed filing.
Kenneth, now 44, served four years in prison in 1995 after pleading guilty to the attempted rape of then 16-year-old Jennifer Hough.
“The timing of the defendant’s registration is concerning because the defendant began dating his wife, quit his job, moved to Los Angeles, and adopted an affluent lifestyle,” prosecutors wrote in the filing.
Prosecutors also allege that Kenneth complied with registration procedures prior to meeting and marrying Nicki Mina and moving to Los Angeles. Kenneth and Nicki married in 2019 and had a child the following year.
“The defendant has been completing sex offender registration documents for nearly 20 years,” prosecutors wrote in the filing. “Over the course of two decades, he has been warned repeatedly that if he moves to another state, it is his responsibility to obey all local, city, state, federal, or international laws regarding registration.”
According to the Feds, they want Kenneth to serve 15 months behind bars and pay a $55,000 fine.
Petty is scheduled to appear at a sentencing hearing on July 6.
