Kenneth Petty, husband to Trinidadian singer, Nicki Minaj has been sentenced to three years probation, a year in-home detention and a $55,000 fine after failing to register as a sex offender in California.

CBS News reported that the 44-year-old was sentenced on Wednesday July 6, 2022 after pleading guilty to the federal charge in 2021.

In June, federal prosecutors initially wanted to sentence Petty to over a year in jail for failing to register as a sex offender, according to court documents. 

“Having previously been convicted of attempted rape, defendant knowingly failed to register as a sex offender upon moving to California,” prosecutors said.

Petty spent four years in prison after being found guilty of a rape in 1994 in New York City. He didn’t register on the sex offenders list when he moved to California with Minaj, which is how the federal authorities caught him.

He pleaded guilty to the attempted rape of Jennifer Hough, a school girl who was then 16 years old.

In August 2021, alleged rape victim, Hough filed a lawsuit against him and Minaj, 39, in which she accused the pair of attempting to intimidate her into recanting her rape accusation.

The suit was then dropped by Hough in January, according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.
