Apollo Nida is the husband of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks, and he was sentenced to eight years in prison by a federal court judge today. He pled guilty to bank fraud and ID theft following a four-year scheme that raked in more than $2.3 million.

Apollo was facing 30 years but was given leniency after he cooperated with authorities (a.k.a. he snitched).

“The government did what they had to do,” Nida said before leaving the courthouse. When asked if he was unhappy about the sentence, he said, “Whatever the judge gave.”
