That guy from the Real Housewives Of Atlanta—who T.I. checked on video for calling him a snitch—has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison. Ironically, Apollo Nida’s sentence was lighter than it could have been since he “cooperated.”

Reports Page Six:

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that 35-year-old Apollo Nida was also ordered to pay restitution to victims of a $2.3 million scheme during his sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court in Atlanta.

Nida is the husband of Phaedra Parks, one of the reality show’s stars. He pleaded guilty May 6 to conspiring to commit mail, wire and bank fraud.

Prosecutors say Nida and co-conspirators since 2009 had stolen victims’ identities and used them to obtain checks, file fraudulent tax returns and make fraudulent claims against the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Authorities say the group laundered money by opening bank accounts in its victims’ names.

Reportedly, Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years in the bing, but according to TMZ he was granted leniency because he cooperated with investigators and provided intel.

That “no snitching” code goes out the window pretty often when you’re looking at time, doesn’t it?
