Apollo Nida’s Plea Deal: What Are the Terms of the Agreement?
Though it wasn’t explicitly stated at first, when Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nidaplead guilty to wire and bank fraud yesterday, May 6, we could pretty much infer that he’d made a deal with the federal prosecutors. But what exactly are the conditions of that deal? Well, we’re now finding out, courtesy of those intrepid folks over at TMZ.
The site is reporting that in Apollo’s plea, he agreed to act in an “undercover investigative capacity” for the feds. What that means is, Phaedra Parks’s hubby will allow government investigators to record any and all conversations he has with other criminal suspects — likely those involved in his laundering scheme.
As a refresher, with his guilty plea, Apollo admitted to stealing more than 50 identities and laundering $2.3 million. One of his rumored associates was already sentenced to five years in prison for her involvement in the operation.
The one odd thing that outlets are pointing out is that Apollo’s agreement has been made public. And considering that he’s a public figure, how will he be able to get anyone to spill information to him?
We’re not sure about all that, but we do know that his sentencing will occur on July 8. He’s currently facing up to 30 years in prison, but that’s unlikely considering this deal. Keep tuned to Wetpaint Entertainment as more information arises.
