Dang someone is getting more chances than Lindsay Lohan and his name is Joe Giudice!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star's trial for identity fraud has been postponed yet again and this time the official re-set date is October 28th! Joe's trial was supposed to begin last week but his attorney was detained on a murder case that ran long so he petitioned to have the date pushed back. The prosecution, who is ready despite finding new evidence against Joe, was fine with the delay.
Just a reminder, Joe is charged with "wrongfully using identifying information of another person, a second-degree crime carrying 10 years in prison, and forgery, a fourth-degree crime that carries an 18-month maximum prison sentence. He is currently free on $50,000 bail."

NorthJersey.com reports that Joe's attorney Miles Feinstein predicts a "lengthy trial" because of Joe's reality TV fame and expects it will be difficult to select unbiased jurors because of the show. Mr. Feinstein has commented that jury selection could take "weeks" and the trial could last as long as 2½ weeks.
As for the honorable Judge Gooden Brown who will be presiding over the case, she had difficulty with the ever-changing pronunciation of "Giudice" and she isn't a fan of RHONJ, apparently! “I’m sorry. I don’t watch the show,” she remarked.
