Apollo Nida Has Been Released Into The Halfway House…Again
Apollo Nida’s story is such a yo-yo. In June, Nida was released from prison into a halfway house. Then, ten days later, he violated a technical rule of his parole and was taken back into prison.
Now, according to The Blast, Nida is back out again. The Federal Bureau of Prison stated that Nida will be returned to the halfway house in Philadelphia.
Nida pled guilty to laundering more than $2.3 million bank and wire fraud in 2014. He was sentenced to 96 months in federal prison. Eventually, his sentence was reduced by a full year. His release date was set for October 15 but since he was sent back to prison, prison records state that his new release date is November 26.
Hopefully, Nida is clear on all the rules now.
Nida’s fiancee, Sherien didn’t say what parole violation he’d committed, she just said that he was innocent.
While Sherien was adamant that he didn’t do anything wrong, his ex-wife and mother of his children, Phaedra Parks wasn’t too thrilled about Apollo getting their sons excited for his release, only to end up back in prison.
“There’s a box of Father’s Day cards, mugs, little plates and things that they’ve made that I was going to send him. He couldn’t come anyway because he was in the halfway house transition home. But you know, they can’t talk to him at all now because he’s back in prison. Apollo had been telling me that he was coming home early. I’m of the mindset, “I’ll believe it when I see it”.And so when he called us on FaceTime and he was in a car and we could see that he was outdoors and so he said, “I’ve been released” and we were all excited because of course I want the boys to have a relationship with their father – and it would be great to have that support from Apollo. But of course, you know, nine days later he was rearrested.’ ‘I was disappointed, but at the same time, I don’t know if I was that shocked because he is a risk taker and I just hate it because now it’s just above all of us, only Jesus can fix it. ‘I can’t make him be what he doesn’t want to be. He has to want to change.”
