After multiple postponements of his sentence hearing, Kenneth was sentenced to probation and in-home detention.

He was also ordered to pay a $55,000 fine, People reports.

Kenneth was convicted back in 1995 of attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl and spent over four years in prison. In New York, he is registered as a level two offender, which means he’s considered a “moderate risk of repeat offense.”

Kenneth was arrested in March 2020 after being indicted for failure to register as a sex offender when he moved to California. At the time, he pleaded not guilty and posted $100,000 bail.

Kenneth previously got pulled over by Beverly Hills police back in November 2019, who discovered he was a registered sex offender in New York, but had not registered in California. He was arrested, released on a $20,000 bond, and charged for failing to register as a sex offender.

Prosecutors were looking for a harsher sentence for Kenneth.
