“A criminal history category of V substantially overstates the seriousness of Mr. Nida’s criminal past, thus warranting a departure from the Guidelines range,” his attorneys stated in July 3 documents, citing the 35-year-old personal trainer’s history of three probation revocations, driving under the influence, and giving a false name to law enforcement, all before he turned 24 years old.

“Mr. Nida’s lengthy but early small-time criminal history is simply not in the same league as the “violent offenders, drug kingpins and perpetrators of far more serious offenses” that Criminal History Category V was designed to address.”

As previously reported, the father of two is spending the final days before his sentencing alone as wife Parks, 41, vacations with girlfriends including singer Fantasia Barrino in Mexico.

“We’re working to make it better,” Nida told of his marriage.

Prosecutors alleged that Nida created fake companies, and opened fake bank accounts to funnel stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds.
