‘RHOA’ star Apollo Nida gets more time to figure out his defense in trial

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Apollo Nida was accused earlier this year of being the mastermind behind various false companies, including creating companies under a false name. He was charged with identity theft and fraud, but he got to go home to his wife. He is now spending his days, preparing for trial and getting his defense in order. Last week, he was granted an extension to his preparations. According to a new Radar Online report published on Feb. 18, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Apollo Nida is considering taking a plea deal.

In court documents that were filed on Valentine’s Day, a federal judge wrote, “The Court finds that the ends of justice served by granting the motion to continue outweighs the public’s and defendant’s interest in a speedy trial. Specifically, this delay will allow the parties time necessary to discuss a resolution of the allegations.”

The trial has been delayed until next month, meaning he needs to decide whether to proceed with a trial or accept some kind of a plea deal. There have been no discussions as to whether he will accept a plea deal, but if he does, many may see it as an admission of guilt. He could be facing several years in prison, given he “stole unsuspecting victims’ identities through a shady business empire and then used that information to open fake bank accounts for cashing stolen checks.”

What do you think he should do?
