It’s time! Just weeks after Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight years in prison for his fraud case, has exclusively learned that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been ordered to report to federal prison on September 10.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Phaedra Parks’ husband must surrender himself at the FMC Lexington prison in Lexington, Kentucky, on September 10 at noon.

READ The Surrender Report

Though he originally faced up to 30 years in prison, Nida was sentenced to just eight years for fraud and identity theft back in July. He also must pay nearly $2 million in restitution.

According to a written affidavit, Nida created fake companies, enabling him to access databases to find individuals to rip off. He opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.

He also allegedly opened a fake auto dealership and applied for auto loans in the names of stolen identities.

Nida was first named in connection with the crimes in January. After multiple closed-door meetings with prosecutors, he entered a guilty plea in May.

This is not his first time behind bars: He previously served six years for a car theft scheme.

Nida told Radar that he hoped his spotty history with the law could be an example for other young men. “Don’t do as I do, but take my experiences and hope that it will give you a better platform,” he said.
