Joe Giudice Fraud

'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' stars Joe and Teresa Giudice have pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges.

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. 

Joe has been dragging the case out for years, repeatedly turning down plea deals and blaming his Real Housewives Of New Jersey “celebrity” for undue harshness in the case. Last week prosecutors announced that this sentence would run concurrently with his federal one and simply be added on to any time he is already serving.

teresa giudice talks prison sentence in us weekly

A week after receiving a 15 month sentence for fraud, Teresa Giudice is speaking out about going to prison and admitting that she feels guilty “every day” for her actions. However Teresa says she is ready to learn from her mistakes, focus on the positives, and come back stronger.  

“I wish I could do everything differently,” a tearful Teresa acknowledges. “But then again, maybe not, because this is a life lesson I need to learn and will learn, and will teach my children for the rest of my life, just as Judge Salas told me she expected me to do.” 

“I have to look at what will come of this while I’m away,” the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star accepts. “The bond between my children and their father, Joe, my honey, will grow stronger and stronger. And that is something I will be grateful for.”

Teresa Giudice seemed utterly confused about what happened during her sentencing, as evidenced by her appearance on WWHL, where she claimed to not understand what she was doing when she signed a guilty plea. #WTFTeresa. Now comes a report that after receiving 15 months and 41 months in prison, Teresa and Joe Giudice have fired their attorneys!

Teresa’s crisis PR Manager Wendy Feldman confirmed the Giudices are no longer working with their attorneys. “There is no need, their lawyers’ job is done,” she revealed of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars.

The drama surrounding the Giudice’s legal matters continues to unfold. Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Teresa Giudice landed herself 15 months. During the course of the Giudice’s fraud indictment it emerged that despite living in the US for the majority of his life, and being married to a US citizen, Joe isn’t one himself, and therefore faces deportation after he serves his time. 

Joe’s immigration attorney, Jerard Gonzalez, says that proceedings for a possible deportation will not begin until after Joe’s sentence is completed, however experts connected to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) said that officials could decide to expedite proceedings at any time – even while the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still behind bars!

“They could come pick him up tomorrow. I doubt they would do that,” says immigration attorney Edward Shulma (who is not connected to Joe’s case).“They want them to do most of the time.”

wwhl andy and giudices

Well I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow night! Bravo seems to be cashing in on everything Giudice now that the stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey are heading to the clink. I have to admit, I am still a bit of shock to think of Teresa Giudice serving actual time. Something tells me that Juicy Joe wasn’t surprised to hear his sentence. I feel like he’s been dodging the law for so long, it has to be a bit of relief to get to stop running.

Of course, the Giudices (and the network that introduced them to the world) want to proactively handle the insane publicity that is sure to intensify as we countdown to Tre’s lock-up. Andy Cohen is no dummy. He’s going to milk this for all it’s worth, and he’s already teasing the Giudices’ Monday appearance in the clubhouse on the heels of Teresa canceling her public appearances.

All we can do is sit and wait for the official word on Joe and Teresa Giudice’s sentencing hearing this morning.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple just arrived to the Federal Courthouse in New Jersey and we have the first photos of them making their way to the building.  Teresa and Joe both look stoic.  Teresa chose a simple black suit and a soft pink blouse. 

I have to admit that all along I’ve been feeling like Teresa would get off with house arrest, but suddenly this morning I feel like she might have to serve some significant time.
