Kenneth Petty Nicki Minaj’s husband will serve a one-year jail term for failing to register as a sex offender in the California area.
He will execute that bond in the house where he lives with Nicki.
The 44-year-old Petty was read out the sentence last Wednesday and includes a one-year house sentence, three years’ probation and a $ 55,000 fine after he pleaded guilty in court in September last year.
However the prosecution appears to be dissatisfied with the verdict claiming that the house Kenneth lives in is luxurious and is in a prestigious location so he will not feel the sentence. Prosecutors had suggested that the defendant be sentenced to 15 months in prison and sentenced to five years in custody.
Petty was sentenced to four years in prison in 1994 in New York for completing her sentence but when she moved to California and Nicki did not register on the list of sexual offenders she was again prosecuted by security officials.
