Back in November, Mrs. St. Julien pleaded guilty and accepted a plea deal for her involvement in the Identity Fraud Scam masterminded by Apollo Nida. The feds charged Gayla St. Julien with opening 40 bank accounts in and around the Atlanta area, using stolen identities and depositing stolen US Treasury checks, fraudulent checks, stolen retirement checks issued to Delta Airlines employees. In addition to, checks in the names of real people who were owed unclaimed property from various state and federal government agencies.
Mrs. St. Julien named Apollo Nida as her co-conspirator in the following list of charges:
- Theft and Conversion of Public Money
- Bank Fraud
- Aggravated Identity Theft
- Mail Fraud
- Money Laundering
Today, Gayla St. Julien appeared in a Georgia Federal Court to learn her faith. The judge sentenced her to 5-years in prison. Her husband posted the following on Instagram after the sentence was announced:
Five years seems reasonable since they could have given her the maximum of 7 years based on her plea deal. Apollo is currently working on a plea deal of his own with the feds to avoid a trial and while the specific details of the plea deal is sealed, he is facing up to 10+ years in prison.
