'Housewives' Star Apollo Nida

8 Years In Prison

Sentence Shortened For SNITCHING

7/8/2014 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apollo Nida Prison Sentence

Apollo Nida just got an enormous break for singing like a canary ... he got 1/4 the maximum sentence for a massive money fraud scheme.

Nida -- who appears on "Real Housewives of Atlanta" with wife Phaedra Parks -- was just sentenced to 8 years in federal prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 mil through phony bank accounts.

The judge who sentenced him today in a Georgia court said Nida did indeed cooperate with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets ... and that's why he got leniency.  

Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years, so 8 years is a big victory.  

It's all relative folks.

He did the crime he got to serve the time. My heart goes out to his two boys ... they are the ones who is going to suffer from a lost.I dont think its good or healthy for a child to see a parent though a glass window or have a time limit to a visit. But he did it to himself!!!!
