Now that Apollo Nida has been charged with fraud, all kinds of things are coming out about his wife, Phaedra Parks, and a woman she is suing, Angela Stanton, who partnered with Nida during his first scandal back in 2004.

Parks is currently suing Stanton for her claims that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was the ring leader in their first fraud scandal and it looks like she has taken desperate measures and outed Stanton's criminal past to prove her case.

During a deposition Thursday, Stanton confessed that she went to jail earlier this year after a confrontation with a family member. Just hours later, word got out to local Atlanta blogs about Stanton's arrest.

Apollo Nida's 1st Appearance Since Fraud Surrender 

Once Stanton's lawyer, James Radford, found out that news of her recent arrest went viral, he released a statement via his blog and speculated how the news could have been leaked just after the deposition. He stressed that there were only a handful of people in the room during the meeting, including Parks and her team.

Radford wrote, "The deposition began at about 10:15. Sometime fairly shortly after it begun, Ms. Stanton testified that she had been arrested fairly recently after an altercation with a member of her family. (Often, in depositions, a witness will be asked to identify any and all arrests, and a witness is obliged to provide that information). At 12:54 PM today, I received the following tweet from Atlanta blogger Sandra Rose: It is a striking coincidence that, within less than two hours of Ms. Stanton divulging this information (which has nothing to do with the case), during a deposition in which Ms. Parks and her assistant were present, the information would be in the hands of an Atlanta blog that frequently covers The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the Parks v. Stanton case, etc."

Stanton has maintained that Parks was not only involved in the fraudulent scam that sent her to prison, but that she was the mastermind. In her court documents she stated, "We were all involved in the federal racketeering scheme against the federal government... Phaedra's schemes were clever and elaborate. She never ceased to astound each and every time she approached me with an assignment... I often found myself excited about learning her tricks of the trade. Phaedra was this crooked attorney who knew how to commute crimes against the federal government."

Nida is currently being charged with fraud once again after he surrendered to Atlanta police on Jan 24. He has a hearing scheduled for Feb. 12.
