Teresa Giudice is officially an inmate at Danbury Correctional Institute where she will remain until 2016. While her newest attorney (there’s been a string of ’em) James J. Leonard Jr. has speculated the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star will be out by Christmas of next year, the prison lists it just a leeeetle later than that!
Teresa surrendered to Danbury in the wee hours of the morning on January 5th to avoid the media circus (consisting of Bravo cameras following a sobbing Jacqueline Laurita and desperate Kathy Wakile) already forming outside of her house, and because she didn’t want to expose her daughters to any more negative publicity. Danbury has her prisoner Register Number as 65703-050.

According to the prison website Teresa is slated to be released on 2/05/16. Now of course, good behavior could shave 15% off her sentence, and her attorney is planning to work some of his well-known magic.
Yes, James Leonard Jr. is pretty much a wizard with the hardened (or famous) criminals – I have no idea how Teresa got this hookup (possibly from Victoria Gotti, or former RHONJ extra Jennifer Dalton, after he represented her friend Lil Kim), but he has a string of high-profile celebrity and mafia clients.
You can get a scoop on James‘ rather beleaguering bio from his website. Lord would I absolute die to see him face-off against Jim Marchese!
In other Giudice news while Joe Giudice is at home feeling incredibly guilty, the family is also incredibly broke. They’re trying to liquidate their infamous New Jersey mansion to pay down massive debts – including restitution and a $13 million dollar debt related to their failed bankruptcy filing (aka the thing that got them into this whole prison mess!).
Teresa and Joe initially listed the mansion, located in Towaca, NJ for $3.999. After little action in November they slashed the price by $500,000 and now they’ve given it another whopping $500,000 price reduction in order to entice buyers – meaning they’re now seeking $2.99 million reports TMZ.
Realtor.com has photos and details on the listing. Perhaps Teresa needs to ask her old pal Jennifer to take the listing – or maybe one of the Million Dollar Listing NYC guys can get it sold. Cross-over By Bravo! And as a bonus buyers will get to live sort of near Melissa Gorga… and her beavers.
