Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice were convicted of federal fraud charges and each was sentenced to serve separate prison terms. The presiding judge, Esther Salas, was critical of the two at their sentencing, even stating that “It feels like things have been hidden.” She cited these omissions as a factor in her decision to sentence them both to prison time. Now, there has been a vicious attack on Judge Salas’ family that appears to be a targeted murder. The attack left the judge’s son dead and her husband in the hospital.
TMZ reports that a gunman disguised as a FedEx employee went to Judge Esther Salas‘ home. He then shot her husband and killed her son. Judge Salas’ husband survived.
Teresa‘s attorney, James Leonard, says that Teresa is “devastated” by the news this weekend. He reports that she is heartbroken for the New Jersey judge who sent her and her hubby to prison.
“Knowing Teresa the way I do, I think if she were to have an opportunity to see Judge Salas, I think she would hug her and pray with her.” the lawyer continued.”This is such a horrific tragedy, I know that the entire legal community is shocked and devastated and praying for Judge Salas and her family.”
There is no indication that the attack has any connection to the Giudice case. Judge Salas presided over many cases, including a class-action lawsuit involving Jeffrey Epstein.
It is sad to see such a violent event connected to Teresa. I am sure Teresa did not like the judge much when she sentenced her to prison time. Still, I cannot see her ever wanting to inflict this level of pain on anyone. In spite of her previous relationship with Judge Salas, Teresa is all about family. I am sure she is sickened by this vicious attack.
My heart goes out to Judge Salas and her family. I cannot imagine the pain and devastation she must be going through. I only hope that those responsible for this horrifying attack are quickly brought to justice. Our thoughts and prayers are with Judge Salas during this difficult time.
