It was determined yesterday that Joe Giudice will be back in court on November 19th for the trial concerning his identity theft case. Joe allegedly took his brother’s identification to obtain a New Jersey driver’s license while his license was suspended for a DUI arrest in June of 2010. Giudice’s lawyer, Miles Feinstein, was working on a murder trial which led to Joe’s trial date being rescheduled.
Joe has reportedly been offered several plea deals, but according to Feinstein he has turned them down because they all include more jail time than similar cases, because of Joe’s celebrity status.
Joe is not only faces forgery charges, which can carry up to an 18-month jail sentence, but he is also facing charges of wrongfully using identifying information of another person, which can carry a sentence of up to ten years in jail.
This does not include the 50 years in federal prison Joe and Teresa are facing on the 39 count indictment by the federal government.
