Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty has pleaded not guilty after he appeared in court on Wednesday.
According to TMZ, Kenneth Petty was indicted for failure to register as a sex
offender in California, then turned himself into U.S. Marshals following the
indictment, and was subsequently arrested.
Initially, prosecutors wanted to place Petty under house arrest, but his attorney
objected and now he will be required to wear an ankle monitor in addition to
adhering to a curfew.
A lawyer for Petty says he will be posting a $100,000 bond later today.
He isn’t allowed to use drugs, including marijuana from legal dispensaries in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, Nicki Minaj’s husband Petty faces a maximum of 10 years in prison if he is convicted on the federal charge of failing to register,
In 2019, Nick defended her man on Instagram, when fans flooded her feed with
disapproval over her silent acceptance of Petty’s crimes.
