Teresa And Joe Giudice Court Appearance

No sentence yet, but Judge Salas is not happy with Joe and Teresa Giudice for not disclosing everything they should have on financial documents and for turning them in MONTHS late. 

According to NewJersey.com the Federal judge is ticked that the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple left several “glaring omissions” on their financial disclosure forms, including recreational vehicles, home furnishings, cars, construction equipment and seven other items.  Apparently they were also supposed to have filed these documents in MARCH, but first did it in AUGUST.  That is why their hearing was delayed!   “I had to put the sentencing off because the financial disclosure wasn’t in,” Salas said.

Ouch.  This isn’t starting off well!  We’ll keep you posted!

and now there’s some possible issues with Joe’s failure to file tax returns. 

From @VickiHY on Twitter, “Break in hearing. Conflicting reports from lawyers as to whether Joe filed his tax returns since 2009.” 

Another update from Newjersey.com:

  “Teresa, for instance, lists 0 for her jewelry on the forms, but her defense attorney said that most of her jewelry is worth very little because it is costume jewelry. The couple listed $25,000 in furnishings for their $3 million home but the defense attorney said that’s because the furnishings seen on TV are brought in by the production company.”

Salas is lecturing the couple about the “glaring omissions” in both Joe and Teresa Giudice’s financial disclosure forms. Salas read off recreational vehicles, home furnishings, cars, construction equipment — all not reported to the probation office by the couple but listed on federal prosecutor’s documents.

The judge then went on to list seven other items not listed on any court documents that were later discovered by government investigators.

“How is it that at this point the court is having to go over this?” Salas asked the Giudice’s defense attorneys.

Both offered little explanation except to say that the couple had hired an accountant and provided that person with their financial information.

Salas also hit on the lateness of the filings. The Giudices had the required forms to turn into the court by or before March 4 but the probation office didn’t receive the information until Aug. 19, she said.
