Nicki Minaj's husband Kenneth Petty is in hot waters after he said he is guilty of failing to register as a convicted sex offender.
In the state of California, Petty pleaded guilty during a virtual appearance in District Court for the Central District of California, as shown in court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
Petty, who was arrested over charges of rape of a minor girl in 1995, now faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release.
His sentencing has been scheduled for January 24, 2022.
In March 2020, the 43-year-old was taken into custody after being indicted for failure to register as a sex offender.
At the time, he pleaded not guilty and posted $100,000 bail, according to records accessed by the outlet.
He was sentenced to 18 to 54 months, but spent four years in prison and was ultimately released.
Moreover, he is a level two registered offender in New York, which means he's considered a "moderate risk of repeat offense."
