It is official. Kenneth Petty is now a registered sex offender in the state of California.

He’s listed as 5’9″, 170lbs … and has a Bev Hills address. Check out his booking photo too — Ken doesn’t look very happy to be in custody.

TMZ broke the story … KP was initially picked up by cops after a traffic stop last year in Bev Hills — prosecutors say that’s when they discovered he was registered as a sex offender in NY, but not yet on the books in California.

He was charged by the L.A. County D.A. for not registering … before the feds arrested him last week for the same crime. While the L.A. County charge has been dropped, Petty will be back in court next month for the federal case — and he has to wear an ankle monitor until then.

He also has to keep his nose clean substance-wise — one of the conditions of his bond is no drugs, including legal weed.

Petty’s sex offender status stems from a 1995 NY conviction for first-degree attempted rape.
