Apollo Nida’s Co-Conspirator Sentenced To Five Years For Bank Fraud, ID Theft
Rucuss staffApril 26, 2014
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida’s alleged co-conspirator in his bank fraud and identity theft scheme received a lengthy sentence for her crimes.
Gayla St. Julien was sentenced to 61 months in prison. She appeared in U.S. District Court on Wednesday, where she pled guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud and aggravated identity theft, AJC reports.
St. Julien claims to have worked with Nida from 2009 to 2013 and has “described herself as NIDA’s ‘right hand b****’ in executing the legwork of his fraud schemes.” St. Julien also told Alexandre Herrera, a U.S. Secret Service Agent in the Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad, that she received “scraps” in comparison to the money Nida pocketed as a result of their alleged schemes.
St. Julien was arrested September 11, 2013, which is when she confessed to investigators about the schemes. Days later, she set up a meeting with Nida where U.S. Secret Service agents confiscated the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star’s cell phone and computer.
According to an updated complaint filed earlier this week, Nida opened two fake collections agencies to acquire access to databases “in order to obtain unlimited access to the personal identifiers of others.”
Nida waived his incitement on fraud charges on Monday. He basically agrees the prosecutor has enough evidence to move forward with the case, which is a common prelude to setting up a plea deal. A trial date has not been scheduled yet.
