Nicki Minaj's husband was sentenced to home confinement after he failed to register as a sex offender

LOS ANGELES -- A representative of the federal prosecution's office stated Wednesday that Nicki Minaj's husband was sentenced to one year in home confinement for failing register as a sex ofender.

According to the representative of the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Central District of California, Kenneth Petty was sentenced to three year probation and fined $55,000. The office did not respond further.

Petty pleaded guilty to failing to register as an sex offender in September.

According to court documents, he had to register as a sexual offender after he was convicted in New York of first-degree attempted to rape when he was 16.

Petty arrived in California in July 2019. Authorities discovered that he was not registered during a Beverly Hills traffic stop. In March 2020, he was arrested.

Petty's attorney did not respond to a request for comment on Wednesday night.

Prosecutors had advocated for prison time and wrote in June that he should receive 15 months or just over a year in prison.

Prosecutors claimed that he knew he had not registered after he moved to California. Prosecutors also argued that home confinement was not appropriate. They cited a Calabasas home with a pool and six bedrooms, seven bathrooms.

After the New York attempted murder conviction, Petty spent nearly four years in prison.
