Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Apollo Nida is reportedly close to reaching a plea deal with the government after his arrest for identity theft, bank fraud, and conspiracy.
His pre-trial proceedings have been delayed until March 25 and in the two months since his arrest, his attorneys “and counsel for the government have been engaged in discussions…” newly filed court documents obtained by Radar Online.
“They are still in the process of investigating additional facts and negotiating a resolution,” the documents explain, and “have made substantial progress toward a resolution of this case.”
As a result of their discussions, the court agreed to another extension until April 25th while they continue to negotiate a plea deal.
The new extension ensures he will have “sufficient time to consult with his counsel, investigate all facts material to resolving this matter, and continue said discussions with the government,” his attorneys wrote.
He’s currently facing up to 30 years, but if a plea deal is reached then his sentence could be reduced drastically for an exchange of whatever information the government is after.
Do you think he’ll avoid prison?
