Apollo Nida Faces 30 Years, He Is Trying To Reduce Max Jail Time Before Sentencing

Real House Wives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida could receive 30 years behind bars!

The reality star is now begging the court to lower his criminal history category which will therefore lower his maxium time in prison. He has requested that the Atlanta District Court change his status from Criminal History Category V to Criminal History Category IV.

Prosecutors alleged that Nida created fake companies, and opened fake bank accounts to funnel stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds and he plead guilty a few months ago.

His attorneys argued for a lesser criminal category in 3 documents last week citing the 35-year-old’s history of three probation revocations, driving under the influence, and giving a false name to law enforcement, all before he turned 24 years old saying:

“A criminal history category of V substantially overstates the seriousness of Mr. Nida’s criminal past, thus warranting a departure from the Guidelines range. Mr. Nida’s lengthy but early small-time criminal history is simply not in the same league as the “violent offenders, drug kingpins and perpetrators of far more serious offenses” that Criminal History Category V was designed to address.”

According to sources, Apollo is spending his final days with his wife Phaedra Parks and two boys.

On July 8th, Apollo is being sentenced and whatever jail time he receives will be massive. Do you think his lawyers will be successful at reducing his jail time?
