Bada Bing! 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Star Going to Federal Prison
The stars of Bravo's 'Real Housewives' franchise cannot seem to stay out of legal trouble.
New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice were indicted on 39 counts of federal fraud, including mail and mortgage fraud, and tax evasion in 2013.
After postponing the trial and sentencing for more than a year, the judgment day has finally come.
Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas on bankruptcy, mail and wire fraud charges today. He must also pay $441,000 from one of the loans he illegally obtained years before he was on the reality show.
The judge just sentenced Teresa to 15 months in prison, and indicated that the sentence would be staggered from her husband's sentence, so Joe could be at home with their 4 daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Miliana, and Audriana.
This just demonstrates that even if you are a "celebrity," you do the crime, you do the time. Good luck to the Giudice family!
