It looks like Phaedra Parks’ return to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ just got itself a storyline boost.
Phaedra’s ex-husband, Apollo Nida, is set to be released an entire year earlier than expected.
via The Blast:
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a federal judge signed off on an order reducing Nida’s 96-month prison term down to 84 months, shaving off a full year.
The document states, “The defendant’s sentence is hereby reduced to 84 months of imprisonment with credit to be given by the Bureau of Prisons for all time served. All other terms of the sentence imposed by this court on July 8, 2014, shall remain unaffected by this order.”
Nida is now scheduled to be released in August 2020 and will be on probation for several years.
Back in 2014, Nida was originally sentenced to eight years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft.
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida were married in 2009 but following his prison sentence, they separated. They officially filed for divorce in 2016 and fought for several months until settling in 2017.
Nida is currently locked up in a New Jersey federal prison, Fort Dix FCI.
We bet Bravo producers are already planning on how to get Apollo back on camera.
