Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe and Teresa Giudice Sentenced to Jail for Fraud

It’s official…both Joe and Teresa Giudice are headed to prison. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have both been sentenced to jail for bankruptcy, bank, and mortgage fraud charges!

The couple did plead guilty to the charges, and were apologetic for their actions. However, Judge Esther Salas laid down the law, giving them both jail time. The U.S. District Court Judge ruled that Joe would serve 41 months (a little over three years) in prison, have two years of supervised probation, and have to pay $414,588 in restitution while Teresa was given 15 months behind bars. Because she has the lesser time, Teresa will serve her sentence first, and is required to surrender to authorities on January 5, 2015. That way, either Joe or Teresa will be around to take care of their four children. However, it is possible that Joe will be deported back to his home country Italy.

According to Deadline, Joe and Teresa will appear on a special Watch What Happens Live: One-on-One with Teresa and Joe with Andy Cohen on Bravo on October 6 at 9 PM to discuss their sentencing.

I can’t say I feel bad for them that much. You do the crime, you have to do the time. However, I feel bad for their kids having to see their parents go through all this, knowing that they will both be going to prison. Hopefully, Joe and Teresa have both learned from this, and will come out stronger and smarter people.
