It would be recalled that Petty was arrested in 2020 over the offense.

He was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender in the city. Petty moved to California from New York in July 2019, but according to law enforcement he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November 2019 and that's when his legal troubles started.

According to the reports, he was pulled over in November and arrested for not registering as a sex offender in California.

He was later released on a $20,000 bond after being charged.

Petty crimes took place in New York back in 1995 when he was arrested and jailed for first-degree attempted rape.

He served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender.
