After the threat of facing up to 30 years in jail, Apollo Nida was officially sentenced on Tuesday for mail, wire, and bank fraud. He was sentenced to eight years in prison; the reduced sentence due to cooperating with a federal investigation.
Apollo’s lawyer issued a statement through People Magazine stating,
On behalf of my client Apollo, right now he feels remorse. He thought the judge was fair, and accepts his sentence, although he was hoping it would be less. Apollo is elated that this proceeding is past him and is no longer handing over his head. It meant everything to him that his mother and brother spoke on his behalf. He’s OK, and will get through this.
Apollo and Phaedra have two young children making this situation extra hard for Phaedra I’m sure. NeNe Leakes recently revealed that RHOA usually starts filming in July, which I’m sure will focus a lot on Phaedra and Apollo’s situation.
Are you surprised that he got eight years? Were you expecting more or less time?
