Joe Giudice Files Lawsuit Against the US Bureau of Prisons

We reported that RHONJ star Joe Giudice is being denied the chance to enroll in the RDAP [Residential Drug Abuse] program at Fort Dix, where Joe is currently in prision. The reason being denied is because he isn’t a United States citizen.

Now, Joe is filing a lawsuit against the US Bureau of Prisons for “improperly denying”Joe the chance to enroll in the program which could reduce his sentence by over a year.

Joe is eligible for house arrest on November 11, 2018, but has a detainer that was filed against him because of a deportation hearing which is on March 14, 2019, RadarOnline reports.

Joe says that he isn’t eligible for house arrest because he was “placed in a federal prison that does not permit him to appear before an immigration judge while he serves his sentence,” and is arguing that the detainer is stopping him from enrolling in prison programs such as the RDAP.

“Mr. Giudice, a lawful permanent resident, is being improperly denied admission into the RDAP [Residential Drug Abuse] program, as he is not an ‘immigration and customs enforcement detainee,’” the papers read. “The ICE detainer is unsigned and improperly executed.”

“ICE’S placement of a detainer on him has deprived him of all programs afforded to other inmates at Ft. Dix without giving Mr. Giudice a chance to challenge his removability from the United States,” the documents continued. “He will not be able to fight removal until 2019.”

Do you think Joe should be able to enter the RDAP?

    Joe should be given no special consideration. He needs to finish is full sentence, go into ICE custody, fight to stay here and ultimately be deported.

      I Agree, 100%

  • watching in ohio

    I have no sympathy for this criminal! He created this situation for himself by his own actions! He continues to be the arrogant entitled jerk that brought him to this place!

    Sad to say, like many illegals, they want all the Gov. offers free of charge, but won’t do anything to become citizen. (Before you get all scrambled here, I am of the Minority Class, so don’t start saying “racist”…no issue if member was citizen…just saying…

    Joe has lived in this Country, Married in this Country, Created a Family in this Country, Profited and Stole Money from this Country.
    Why didn’t he get his U.S. Citizenship when he Moved to this Country?
    My Parents, Did.
    My Grandparents,Did.
    (My Grandparents & Parents are from Europe, the U.K.)
    Now, Joe after Getting Caught for Committing Countless Crimes, is complaining about his lack of Civil Rights?
    He isn’t an “Legal American”, thus, he doesn’t have the Same Rights as the other Inmates..
    Suing, The Prison System?
    Great Idea, Moron!
    Deport him..
    Sorry, but his Family is better off without him

      He just wants to complete the program to knock a year off his sentence.

    Anyone in jail deserves to get drug and alcohol treatment. I know he did the crime so do the time and all if that but…this country is overrun with addiction (alcoholism is also an addiction). tI say treat as many as you can while they are a captive audience.!!!

      People in jail are criminals, they do not DERSERVE anything more than 3 hots and a cot. Joe isn’t even a US citizen so he certainly does not deserve the extra services afforded to legal citizens of this country. If he wanted treatment, he could have gotten it before he entered the system. He is on an ICE detainer and will probably be deported so the Italian government can handle him from there.

      • cat62

        Yup – thats the American way to think isnt it!!! Lets not care about anyone else in this world but me, me and me.

        • justanothermary

          Do you think Joe was thinking about anyone but himself and his family when he was ripping people off? He lived very well off of other people’s money and his family still is. Do you want us to pay MORE?

  • Frank Van Der Heijden

    He wanted to share his cell with big, muscular Black inmates….but he was thrown in with the Latinos…so he´s suing now

    Did Joe get a hairpiece? Never have seen him with so much hair atop that empty skull of his than the picture posted for this news piece. Oh, it must be a really old picture. Surely by the time he gets home (?) he’ll be totally bald. As far as he being deported, I truly think his dumb azz wife would be better off in Italy since she barely speaks English & acts at home like an Italian Grandma. Joe also, I believe male chauvinists fare better in Italy than America…oh yeah he should take his brother in law along also.

  • cat62

    All inmates should have access to addiction treatment. This is where it is needed most in many cases. Am I a big fan of Joe? NO!!! But this is an instance where it benefits those of us outside the prison walls as well.

    He’s asking for a chance, give it to him. Anybody deserves that.
