Accused of rape, Petty 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.

Petty is supposed to register as sex offender after court found him guilty of first-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1995.

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.”
