Apollo Nida, husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, has been sentenced to eight years in prison. Nida was lucky that the Georgia judge who was overseeing his case was feeling generous on the day of his sentencing. He had been facing up to 30 years behind bars for wire fraud, bank fraud, and mail fraud. The shortened sentence is especially surprising considering that this is not the first time that Nida has been to prison for fraud. He served five years from 2004 through 2009 for auto title fraud as well.

Nida’s attorney said that his client is remorseful for what he did, and is grateful to the judge for giving him a lesser sentence. The reason that he only got eight years was due to the amount of cooperation he gave while the federal investigators were reviewing the case. He knows that he should have gotten a lot more time behind bars. At this point, Nida is just happy that everything is over with and he can now serve his time and then put the mess of the trial in the past.
