Nicki Minaj's husband Kenneth Petty could be facing more jail time for failing to register as a sex offender.

According to celebrity gossip website TMZ, Petty was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender in California.

Petty served almost four years in a New York state prison for a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. He and his victim were both 16 years old at the time.

TMZ said while Petty is registered as a sex offender in New York, he failed to register in California where he and Minaj now live.

US Marshals reportedly arrested and released Petty on a US$20,000 bond last year for failing to register.  He remained unregistered and was indicted in federal court today for the same offense. If convicted, Petty faces up to 10 years in prison according to TMZ.

Just a week ago, Petty found himself in hot water with Trinidadians after video footage captured him pushing away Iwer George's hand while the singer was performing on a music truck next to Minaj.
