Sentencing Delayed for Nicki Minaj Husband

Last year rapper Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth 'Zoo' Petty pled guilty to failing to register as a sex offender after moving to LA with Nicki [click here if you missed that]. 

Sentencing for Zoo has been delayed...

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Petty has reached a deal with prosecutors to push his sentencing date from January 24 to March 30, 2021.
In March, Petty hashed out a plea with the government as part of his federal case over his failure to register as a sex offender. He entered a plea of not guilty and prosecutors agreed to recommend a lighter sentence in court.
As part of his request to postpone the sentencing, Petty explains he is planning to submit an expert report prior to sentencing to argue for no jail time. Minaj’s husband is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years supervised release but could face a little time behind bars.
