Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty Sentenced To One Year House Arrest

Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty — Sentenced To One Year Of House ArrestNicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty is a registered sex offender in New York City before he moved to California in 2019 when he married Nicki. By law, Petty is supposed to also register as a sex offender in his new state, and failure to do so is an offense but, Petty didn’t.

It was in November 2019 that Petty was pulled over by the Beverly Hills Police Department, and it was discovered that while he is a registered sex offender in New York, he had not registered in his new state — which he is legally required to do. In the state of New York, Petty is considered a level two offender, meaning that he is thought to be at “moderate risk of repeat offense.”

In the year 1995, Petty was sentenced to 54 months in prison which he ended up serving four years after he was convicted of one count of attempted rape in the first degree.

Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty’s Sentence

Though Petty pleaded guilty to the federal charge, his hearing was delayed several times before he was sentenced on Wednesday. Petty is to serve three years of probation and a year of home detention for failing to register as a sex offender when he moved to California

He faced up to 10 years in prison with a lifetime of supervised release, but CBS report that 44-year-old Petty will instead spend the next 12 months in his and Minaj’s Los Angeles mansion.

The sentence comes despite prosecutors recommending 15 months of prison time and five years of supervised release. Prosecutors are also reported to have advised against home detention as they contended that Petty’s multimillion-dollar home in an affluent gated community wouldn’t be a punishment. However, the judge ultimately disagreed, and Petty was also ordered to pay a $55,000 fine.

Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty Accused Of Raping A 16-Year-Old

In court records obtained by the Blast, in September 1994, it was alleged that Petty pressed an object to the back of his 16-year-old victim as she walked to school, and told her to “keep walking” until they got to his home. He then allegedly began to rape her at knifepoint before the victim struck him with a bottle and escaped. It was reported that Petty’s friends harassed the victim’s family at the time, forcing her to relocate to Florida.

In August 2021, Petty’s alleged rape victim, Jennifer Hough, filed a lawsuit against both him and Nicki for trying to coerce her into recanting her allegation.

Hough alleged that shortly after Petty’s 2019 arrest, Minaj called her and offered to fly her over to Los Angeles or Minaj’s publicist to Hough. When Hough declined, she and her family allegedly “suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits.” Hough also accused the couple of “witness intimidation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment” in the lawsuit.

According to the New York Times, Hough claims that she was offered varying degrees of payment — from $20,000 to $500,000 — if she signed a statement that renounced her original allegations against Petty.

In January of this year, Minaj was voluntarily dismissed from the lawsuit, but Hough pursued the charges against Petty.
