Yesterday “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars, Joe and Teresa Giudice were sentenced to prison for crimes they’ve committed spanning over a decade.
Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison and her husband, Joe Giudice received a 41 month sentence. The couple pled guilty to mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. Joe was hit with additional charges for tax evasion.
In addition to the prison terms, Judge Salas sentenced Giuseppe and Teresa Giudice each to two years of supervised release, and ordered the couple to forfeit $414,588. Additionally, the judge fined Giuseppe Giudice $10,000 and fined Teresa Giudice $8,000.
The sentence hearing occurred over hours and literally had bystanders fingernail biting and gripped with anxiety waiting to learn their fates. What many thought was going to be a cut and dry sentencing turned out to be a 6 hour lambasting that brought the felonious couple to cry like babies and beg for mercy of the court.
