Apollo Nida Bank Fraud Trial Pushed Back Again; Reportedly Close To Striking Plea Deal
Apollo Nida’s court trial has been pushed back again. And judging by the looks of things, there may not be a trial at all. According to the folks over at Radar Online, the troubled “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is very close to striking a plea deal in relation to the bank fraud and identity theft charges filed against him.
“They are still in the process of investigating additional facts and negotiating a resolution,” court documents explain, and “have made substantial progress toward a resolution of this case.”
As a result, the court has granted his defense team yet another extension. The new extension is to offer “sufficient time to consult with his counsel, investigate all facts material to resolving this matter, and continue said discussions with the government.” If a deal is not reached by the time the latest extension expires, the trial will possibly begin Apr. 25.
If you recall, on Feb. 14 Apollo’s original court date was postponed until Mar. 25. He was arrested at the start of this year after an alleged accomplice accused him of being the mastermind behind an identity theft and bank fraud operation.
