Oh, Joe Giudice – will you never learn: you fought the law and the law won (again and again and again!). Despite the fact that he is literally standing in front a judge right now, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still not prepared to make a decision in his identity fraud case. Lord these Giudices are so disorganized!
Joe is back in a Passaic County courthouse today as a last-ditch effort to arrange a plea deal in his identity fraud case. He previously rejected a few of them in favor of going to trial to prove he’s innocent (HAHAHAHAHA!) despite prosecutors revealing they have very, very convincing evidence against him. The latest plea deal offered by prosecutors gives Joe the opportunity to run his 41 month federal sentence concurrently with his state sentence, but witnesses from court reveal that Juicy is insisting he’s innocent and wants a trial.
The crux of the issue for Joe is that if he accepts the plea deal he won’t legally be able to drive while he awaits his turn to serve time as his license will be suspended for up to 18 months. However IF Juicy goes to trial, he could wind up with the maximum sentence of 10 years. Hmmm, let’s break this down in simplistic terms: 18 months of being trapped in the house with Milania (#GimmeTheKeysYouOldTroll) vs. 10 years of being trapped in prison with…
Joe Giudice‘s legal battle continues! After receiving a 41 month federal sentence, Joe is back in court tomorrow to settle his identity fraud case – and he must decide to accept a plea deal – or go to trial!
After he stole his brother’s identity to fraudulently obtain a driver’s license after he lost his to a DUI, Joe was arrested and concrete evidence obtained by prosecutors proved that he intentionally used faulty information to get a license illegally.
It seems like Joe Giudice should just resign himself to spending a looooong, looooong time behind bars! Besides awaiting sentencing for his federal fraud case, Joe still has not settled his case in New Jersey for identity fraud! Aaaaahhh…. the felonious Fraudices.
NorthJersey.com reports that Joe spent his day in his home away from home on Monday – a NJ courtroom – for a "status hearing" as he and lawyers attempted to iron out a last-minute plea bargain. Joe has a pre-trial date set for July 14.
