Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice
Just days after she reported to prison, officials announced Thursday that reality TV star Teresa Giudice is slated for an early release.
Teresa Giudice said the sentence of 15 months was “very unexpected,” as was the 41-month sentence doled out to her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, last Thursday in federal court in Newark.
Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in prison Thursday and his wife, Teresa Giudice, was sentenced to 15 months behind bars on conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges.
“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice and her husband were indicted Monday on additional fraud charges.
The couple is accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009, then hiding their fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.
