If you recall, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice shocked viewers back in 2010 when it was revealed that they filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt. Shortly afterwards, the two were accused of bankruptcy fraud by their trustee John Sywilok, who accused them of concealing assets and hiding income. By the way, concealing assets just happens to be a federal crime.
In a move to likely avoid persecution, Joe first withdrew his bankruptcy bid back in September, after pleading the fifth amendment during questioning by the trustee.
Following Joe’s move the Giudices’ lawyer told PEOPLE magazine that Teresa would soon follow, stating she felt “vindicated” to be voluntarily paying her remaining debts rather than
go to jail have them discharged in bankruptcy court.
The NJ Star-Ledger is reporting that in addition to withdrawing her bankruptcy, Teresa has also settled the lawsuit by the trustee by acknowledging that she wishes to resolve Sywilok’s proceedings against her “without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without her making any further admissions.”
Teresa’s attorney Jim Kridel stated back in September that Teresa was now making enough money to pay off her debts, while also adding that most of the debt in the bankruptcy belonged to Joe. Safe to say the system won this go around.
