Hough accused Kenneth and his wife of harassment after she began speaking out about her story. Hough alleged that Petty sent his team of lawyers to pay her to stop speaking about the incident/

Because I kept saying no to every offer, the last incident was when one of their associates put $20,000 in my lap and I still kept saying no. The last message I received was that I should’ve taken the money because they’re going to use that money to put on my head.”

Petty’s team has not publicly responded to news of the sentencing.
