Nicki Minaj's Husband Pleads Guilty to Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

Zoo just plead guilty...

Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, could face up to 10 years in prison for a sex offender registry mishap, Us Weekly can confirm.
Petty, 43, pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender during a Zoom hearing with the Los Angeles Federal Court on Thursday, September 9.
Petty’s sentencing hearing for the registration failure is scheduled for January 24. According to the prosecution, he could face a maximum 10-year sentence in federal prison, a lifetime of supervised release and a $250,000 fine or twice the gross loss resulting from the offense.
However, if he receives the minimum sentence, Petty could face as little as a five-year period of supervised release and a $100 court assessment fee.

Zoo will likely avoid jail time after accepting a plea deal earlier this year [click here if you missed that].
