AceShowbiz - Nicki Minaj's husband has been granted permission to use the Internet while he awaits trial for failing to register as a sex offender in California.
Kenneth Petty, who was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in his native New York back in 1995, turned himself in to authorities on 4 March after he was indicted for the crime by U.S. Marshals.
The 41-year-old pleaded not guilty and was freed on bond, but was forbidden from going online without a supervisor's approval as part of his release.
He filed a request to have the Internet restrictions lifted, and on Monday (March 16), his wish was officially granted by a judge, reports TMZ.
Petty became a resident of California last summer (19) after moving cross-country with Minaj, whom he wed in October.
He is due to stand trial for failing to register his status as a sex offender next month (April).
He previously served almost four years in a New York prison for the sex attack.
