Nicki Minaj's Husband Kenneth Petty Charged with Failing to Register as Sex Offender in California

Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, was arrested by U.S. Marshals for failing to register as a sex offender. Petty was in federal custody yesterday after turning himself in.  Petty moved to California in July 2019, but according to law enforcement he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November and that's when the cops noticed he was a registered sex offender in New York, but didn’t register in California, which is required. He was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond and was charged or failing to register as a sex offender. After he didn’t check in after that, the feds got on his case and indicted him in federal court for failing to register. Yesterday, Petty pled not guilty and posted a $100,000 bond. He will also be under pretrial supervision and has already surrendered his passport. His travel will be restricted to Southern California. Petty also can't use drugs, even marijuana from legal dispensaries in L.A. He has another hearing scheduled for March 23rd.
