Is Phaedra going to hold Apollo down?

Apollo Nida has been sentenced to eight years in prison for scheming over 50 people through mail, bank and wire fraud and ID theft.

TMZ reports:

Apollo Nida just got an enormous break for singing like a canary … he got 1/4 the maximum sentence for a massive money fraud scheme.

Nida — who appears on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” with wife Phaedra Parks — was just sentenced to 8 years in federal prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 mil through phony bank accounts.

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

Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years, so 8 years is a big victory.
