It was expected that after his arrest, he would register as a sex offender. However, that wasn't the case as he failed to do so.

Petty latest battle with the law means he will be under pretrial supervision and has already surrendered his passport. His travel will be restricted to Southern California.

Even though the prosecutors wanted him placed on house arrest, but his attorney objected and instead Petty is being required to wear an ankle monitor. If he is found guilty he is likely to spend 10 years behind bars.
