Tv - Phaedra Parks' Husband Sentenced To Eight Years In Jail
U.S. reality Tv star Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for bank fraud and identity theft.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta regular was hit with a series of charges in January (14), over allegations he created fake companies and bank accounts using stolen identities, laundering more than $2.3 million (£1.4 million).
Nida, 35, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud, and on Tuesday (08Jul14), a federal judge sentenced him to eight years behind bars.
Nida faced up to 30 years in prison, but was given leniency after co-operating with federal investigators during the case.
Nida wed lawyer Parks in 2009 and the couple has two children. They have appeared on the reality series, alongside Glee star NeNe Leakes and singer Kandi Burruss, since 2010.
