Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty Faces a Year in Prison for Failing to Register as A Sex Offender.

Kenneth Petty, Nicki Minaj’s husband, faces almost a year in jail for failing to register as a sex offender, according to court documents.

Despite being convicted of attempted rape, the defendant neglected to register as a sex offender in California, prosecutors said.

Petty, now 44, served four years in jail for the attempted rape of 16-year-old Jennifer Hough in 1995.

In August, Hough sued Minaj and Petty in New York for intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual assault, claiming the couple tried to pay her $500,000 to recant the allegations and intimidated her on multiple occasions – claiming they were trying to coerce her to help them get Petty off the registry.
