TMZ says Petty’s legal troubles started last July when he moved to California and got pulled over by Beverly Hills PD on November 15. Though he registered as a sex offender in New York, he did not in California, which is required by law. He was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond per the L.A. County District Attorney.

The feds are also on the case, hence why he is currently in federal custody.

Back in 1995, Petty was convicted of first-degree attempted rape and served almost 4 years in state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender. If convicted on the federal charge of failure to register as a sex offender, Petty faces 10 years in prison.
