'Housewives Star' Apollo Nida

Sure, I'll Be A Rat For The Government

5/7/2014 12:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Apollo Nida Plea Deal
Apollo Nida made a deal with the feds that has landed many an informant in concrete shoes.

Nida copped a plea Tuesday to wire and bank fraud, and TMZ has learned under the terms of the deal he agreed to act in an "undercover investigative capacity" for the feds.

Here's what we don't understand ... the plea deal is now available to the public, so what idiot is going to spill his guts to Nida now?

It gets even weirder.  Nida has agreed to allow the feds to record conversations he may have with other criminal suspects.  Again, it's like screaming through a bullhorn, "Don't talk to that dude!"

Nida stole the identities of more than 50 people and laundered more than $2.3 million ... so the government claims.

Nida could be sentenced to 30 years in prison, but that's worst case scenario.   The judge will formally sentence him in July.

Hopefully, real life snitching will work out better for Nida than it did on "The Sopranos."

LOL! Great pic. Are they expecting him to snitch from prison or will he not be going to prison or are his snitching duties complete already? Now that this info is out there it's going to be difficult to perform his snitch duties.

Holy moly    

This guy is such an idiot! He should of been happy with what his wife was already making and found a good way to earn his money. Now his two beautiful children will be the ones to suffer the consequences. They will have to see their father go to jail over being an idiot.

He'll be fine. snitches are held in high regard in the black community. I'm sure he'll be safe as kittens.

While I don't doubt this guy is a snitch, I am not seeing the doc uments TMZ claims to have seen that say that. Unless the Feds have new rules about exposing their snitches anyone with a brain knows they do not publicize them. TMZ, show me the recipts to make a believer out of me that the Feds publicized on open court doc uments that he agreed to snitch.
