Apollo Nida was just sentenced to eight years of prison due to cashing stolen checks and money laundering.

Check out the details below.

Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks are in our thoughts and prayers today. The husband and father of two is facing a really big prison stint after being found guilty of cashing stolen checks and money laundering.

The good news during this sad time is that Apollo’s sentence is merely a fourth of the time that he was actually facing. The maximum sentence would have been 30 years of federal prison.

The judge who sentenced him today in a Georgia court said that Apollo did indeed cooperate with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets …  and that’s why he got leniency.

As a friend of FreddyO I feel truly sad for the Nida family. The couple has 2 small children and with the time Apollo facing the entire family is going to miss out on so much. So many media sites revel in misfortune. We don’t believe in that here. Let’s keep the Nida family in our thoughts and well wishes.
