*The legal gods are apparently smiling on Apollo Nida.
Nida and Parks filed to push back the proceedings to March 25. Nida was due in court to begin proceedings on February 12.
“The Court finds that the ends of justice served by granting the motion to continue outweighs the public’s and defendant’s interest in a speedy trial,” court documents filed February 14 state. “Specifically, this delay will allow the parties time necessary to discuss a resolution of the allegations.”
This new development pretty much gives Nida a chance to supply information to federal investigators in exchange for a reduced sentence. If convicted, he faces up to
30 years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft.
