Joe Giudice was found liable for fraud in 2007 when his business partner, Joe Mastropole, sued him for forging a signature on a document he did not approve. A lawyer by the name of Monica Chacon represented Giudice’s former business partner, and she is telling RadarOnlineÂ how that case led to the feds indicting the Giudices.
â€œThe work we put in to make sure the judge recognized they were committing fraud ultimately resulted in them withdrawing their petition [and tipping off the feds],â€ she explains. â€œItâ€™s been a long road.â€
Chacon also reveals that she’s been helping build the case against the Giudices for years.Â â€œOur office has had calls from some federal agencies over the past four years,â€ she says. â€œYou donâ€™t think itâ€™s gonna come to anything and then finally [it happens].â€
â€œTeresa and Joeâ€™s true day of reckoning is yet to come. The federal case is still ongoing,” she adds, explaining that she feels vindicated by the indictment.Â â€œBut finally it feels like people are opening their eyes to the situation after so many years. Little by little, the truth is starting to come out. Theyâ€™re starting to show who they really are and what they are about.â€
