Just weeks weeks after Teresa and Joe Giudice cut a plea deal with the government in their fraud case, Apollo Nida is gearing up to follow in their footsteps. RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is close to reaching a plea deal with the government just two months after his arrest for identity theft, bank fraud, and conspiracy.
Nida -- RHOA star Phaedra Parks' husband -- was arrested on January 24, and on February 14, the court granted amotion to continue the pre-trial proceedings until March 25. Since that time, his attorneys "and counsel for the government have been engaged in discussions…" newly filed court documents obtained by Radar reveal.
"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 such, the court agreed to yet another extension, up until April 25, in the hopes that Nida will be able to come to a deal with the government.
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.
