ATLANTA (CBS46) -
A Real Housewives of Atlanta husband will be spending real time behind bars.
On Tuesday, a judge sentenced Apollo Nida to eight years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release.
He faced up to 30 years in prison.
"Today's sentencing exemplifies impartial justice regardless of economic class or perceived celebrity status," said Reginald G. Moore, Special Agent in Charge of the United States Secret Service, Atlanta Field Office. "Nida's sentence should be an eye opener for other like-minded criminals who scheme to steal victims' identities, defraud them and ignore the consequences of their actions."
Nida is married to Housewives cast member Phaedra Parks.
According to court documents, Nida created several fake collection companies so he could get access to the personal information and credit history databases operated by companies like Equifax and Lexis-Nexis. These scheme started in 2009. It ended when the Secret Service confronted Nida and seized his laptop in 2013.
In addition to his prison time, Nida will have to pay up to $4.5 million in restitution. He will be back in court on July 17 for a hearing to determine exactly how much he will have to pay back.
