Apollo Nida’s is coming home sooner than expected!
Phaedra Parks’ ex was sentenced to eight years in prison for one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, in July 2014.
On Tuesday, Apollo’s sentence was reduced to 84 months “with credit to be given by the Bureau of prisons for all time served,” a year less than the previous 96-month sentence, according to a new judgment by United States District Judge Charles Pannell, Jr. “All other terms of the sentence imposed by this court on July 8, 2014 shall remain unaffected by this order.”
Apollo’s new release date is now August 2020 — and he will be on probation for several years thereafter, according to court documents.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum pleaded guilty nearly five years ago in May 2014 after he was charged with being in a four-year scheme involving bank, mail and wire fraud and ID theft of more than 50 people.
“This defendant participated in a sweeping fraud scheme that exploited many segments of the financial system, including phony claims submitted to federal and state agencies, loans secured by vehicles, and even basic identity theft associated with stolen checks,” United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a statement at the time of his plea.
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida, 40, officially divorced in 2017. Phaedra and Apollo have two sons together: Ayden, 8, and Dylan, 5.
Apollo started dating his finance, Sherien Almufti, three years ago, and the couple got engaged in 2016.
As for Phaedra, she went public with her new relationship with Chicago radio host, Tone Kapone, at the beginning of 2019.
