Teresa Giudice Fraud

Teresa and Joe Giudice

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice are scheduled to go before a judge on July 8th for their sentencing hearing after pleading guilty to a whopping 41 counts of federal fraud. 

The couple is still hoping Teresa will be able to avoid jail time and in the meantime are putting on a happy front. With Real Housewives of New Jersey starting days after Teresa's sentence is handed down, one of Bravo's most recognizable stars has been suspiciously absent from any network events – even skipping the Upfronts(Somewhere Melissa Gorga is doing a happy dance that she is finally number 1! Let's hope Poison didn't take any business tips from his brother-in-law. RHONJ season 9 – Can I borrow your leopard print prison jumpsuit when you're done with it?)

Teresa and Joe Guidice plead guilty in Federal Court in NJ

If you're totally and utterly confused about what the hell goes on in the world de Giudice, you are not alone!

Here we all were thinking that Teresa Giudice withdrew her bankruptcy filing in lieu of repaying her defrauded creditors the good ol' fashioned way – with work! But now media outlets are reporting Teresa and Joe, who both pled guilty to multiple financial fraud charges (including bankruptcy fraud), recently had their bankruptcy discharged. Which would mean they went forward with the filing? Seriously – any experts please chime in!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice is no stranger to the Twitter rumor mill. And she gives it plenty to work with. Whether she is flipping tables, fighting with her brother or questioning her husband's loyalty, Teresa has always let Bravo's cameras roll to show the good, the bad and the ugly. (Remember when she was called the c-word by her husband at the vineyard??)

This time the Twitterverse is questioning how the mother of four told her daughters about her legal issues. My question is, did she really need to tell them? Do they have access to the internet? I think you may live under a rock if you have not heard she and her husband are facing jail time.

Teresa and Joe Giudice arrive at a federal court

This week Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice finally faced the inevitable and pled guilty for their 41 counts of federal fraud charges. Teresa has expressed her shame for what this has done to her daughters and vowed not to speak publicly about the matter again. Until Barbara Walters or Oprah comes a'callin' I'm sure! 

Faced with an insurmountable indictment, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is subject to a sentence of 21 – 27 months but Judge Esther Salas has the final say in just how long – if any – Teresa will serve in prison. Perhaps Joe may just be headed to the slammer solo! Teresa's attorney explained to People that Teresa has a strategy for convincing the Judge why she should be permitted to remain a free lady. 

"Teresa's plan is to explain to the court both how she ended up in this mess to begin with as well as how she has made a life for herself and the girls that will see them through it," her lawyer Henry Klingeman revealed. "We have the right to ask for probation and we are going to."

Teresa and Joe Guidice plead guilty in Federal Court in NJ

The court system never fails to boggle my mind.  Yesterday Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice faced the judge to plead guilty to charges of fraud.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars pled guilty to a miniscule amount of charges out of the 41 total that they were facing and their jail time could be short and sweet, depending on the judge's mood come July. 

The Giudice's plea deals hit the court site yesterday and Tamara Tattles broke it down in simple terms.  We've got some of the highlights for you, but for the full read, see TT! 

Teresa's terms.  First, she's pleading guilty to only 4 of the 41 charges she was indicted on.  The feds agree in the plea deal to agree to drop charges 2-14, 16-21 and 26-35.   The counts that stand are as follows:

Count 1: Conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud -  Max 20 years/ $250K Fine
Count 15 : Bankruptcy Fraud- Concealment  – Max 5 years./ $250K Fine
Count 23 : Bankruptcy  Fraud- False Oaths  -  Max 5 years./ $250K Fine
Count 36: Failure to make a Tax Return -  Max 5 years./ $250K Fine

Teresa and Joe Giudice arrive at a federal court

Today is the big day!  Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice just arrived at federal court this morning to plead guilty as part of a plea deal with the prosecutors in their federal fraud case. 

Until we hear the final verdicts of what happened inside this morning, here are the photos of the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars arriving to court just a bit ago to hold us over.  Stay tuned…

Updated Again:  The couple pled guilty in front of the judge this morning with a simple "yes, your honor" when asked if this is how they wished to plead.  Their sentencing will be on July 8th!

From NewJersey.com:  Under the plea agreements Joe "could be sentenced to a minimum of three years but less than four years in prison."  and Teresa "would face a term within the range of 21 to 27 months."    Teresa's attorney reserved the right to ask the judge for a sentence below the guidelines range based on family circumstances and her minimal role in the fraud.  The Judge is not obligated to accept the plea deal's sentencing!

Under their plea agreements, Joe Giudice, 43, could be sentenced to a minimum of three years but less than four years in prison, while Teresa Giudice, 41, would face a term within the range of 21 to 27 months.

Her attorney, Henry E. Klingeman, however, reserved the right to ask the judge for a sentence below the guidelines range based on family circumstances — the couple has four daughters — and her minimal role.

U.S. District Judge Esther Salas set sentencing for July 8. She is not obligated to accept the sentencing parameters agreed upon in the plea deal.

In case you haven't heard Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice are in big time trouble and face a mounting 41-count federal indictment for several different types of fraud. 

In light of her legal woes, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, whose troubles will be featured on the upcoming season, insists she's staying strong and trying to make the best of a bad situation for the time being. “I can’t just be upset and crawl up in a ball and just go in a room and —  and lock the door.  I can’t.  I’m a mom.  I have four daughters,” Teresa tells ABC News

Teresa does admit that it's hard to get through the day, however, and in private she is falling apart. "I would be lying to say I didn’t, you know, that’s not happening,” she shares. The hardest part, she says, is "my kids going through this." Should have thought of that BEFORE, you know, lying and defrauding! "I'm a role model for them," Teresa explains. A role model of what NOT to do!

Joe Teresa Giudice

Strike one against the Giudices!

Federal prosecutors are attempting to block Teresa Giudice's primary defense tactic to be tried separately from her husband Joe Giudice. Teresa and Joe's reasoning behind the petition for separate trials is a clause known as "marital privilege" which states spouses are not required to tell incriminating information against each other. Prosecutors argue that any voluntary testimony disbands that right. 

In a 47 page memorandum presented to the judge on Wednesday, prosecutors argued against the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars' attempt for separate trials, stating: “Teresa and [Joe] appear to share the hope that each may have a better chance of acquittal in a separate trial … This, however, is not sufficient basis to sever two defendants charged as participants in the same conspiracy and fraudulent scheme.”

If you recall, the Giudices' alleged defense scheme is to make Joe take the fall by claiming Teresa didn't know what she was signing. Joe maintains that he wants a separate trial so he can testify in support of this notion that he was the "brains" (HAHAHAHAHA) behind the schemes while Teresa was an innocent victim.
