Roommates, earlier this week we reported on Kenneth Petty being arrested and released in Los Angeles. He was arrested due to allegedly not registering as a sex offender in California.
According to The Blast, Kenneth Petty has been able to get one of his sex cases dismissed, however, he still faces similar federal charges. There was reportedly a hearing in L.A. court Friday where prosecutors apparently told a judge that they were dropping the case against him.
Although that may seem like good news for Kenny, a rep for the D.A.’s office spilled tea to The Blast stating that “The case was dismissed today because he is facing a similar charge in federal court.”
If convicted, Kenneth Petty faces up to 10 years in the slammer. We’ll keep you posted on this story Roommates.
Read below to catch up on the original tea!
