Nicki Minaj‘s husband, Kenneth Petty, has been sentenced to one year of home confinement after failing to register as a sex offender in California.

Due to pleading guilty to not registering as a sex offender in the state last year, Kenneth will be doing three years of probation as well as one year of in-home detention. The 44-year-old was sentenced on July 6th at a Los Angeles court.

According to TMZ, prosecutors initially wanted Kenneth to serve 15 months in prison and five years of probation due to believing that staying in the mansion that he shares with Nicki wasn’t a punishment. However, a federal judge gave him a lesser sentence.

Kenneth was also ordered to pay $55,000 for the offense.

In 1995, the 44-year-old was convicted of the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in New York. Kenneth served four years in prison after initially being sentenced to 18 to 54 months.

Whilst he is registered as a sex offender in the state of New York, he failed to register when he moved to California after getting married to Nicki, 39, in 2019.
