Fans of reality television may have heard that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida is facing bank fraud and identity theft charges. These criminal charges are serious ones that often carry harsh penalties including jail time and hefty fines. If the reality star is convicted of these charges, he may end up being convicted for a lengthy amount of time. Charges such as these not only need an aggressive defense to fight off, but also the recognition that strategizing may be the best way to go.
Nida's legal team may have recognized the importance of defense strategy, as the reality star filed paperwork with the court to delay his court date a month. The court accepted his motion, even though their interests are generally in having a quick trial. The court stated that in this specific situation, though, justice is better served by granting the motion, as it will give the parties involved time to discuss the accusations.
