Nida and his wife Phaedra Parks convicted of cashing stolen checks, laundering more than $2 million dollars through phony bank accounts.
Nida and his wife of several years Phaedra Parks (who is also a cast member of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta) were reportedly convicted of cashing stolen checks, laundering more than $2 million dollars through phony bank accounts. Due to spousal privilege, Phaedra was granted immunity in testifying against her husband. It was reported that Nida begged a judge to lower his sentencing.
His lawyer was quoted as saying, "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.”
