Real Housewives of New Jersey husband Joe Giudice has had legal troubles for as long as we can remember. Now the famous Jersey husband has rejected a plea bargain offered by the prosecution and will go to trial to plead not-guilty in his identity fraud case. Joe’s original trial date was set for October 1, 2012, but now according to Chief Assistant Prosecuter Jay McCann it will likely be postponed until 2013.
“The chances of it going on that day are slim,” Mr. McCann told Celebuzz. “We are going to have to get closer to the day to see if the judge will have time. The court tries to give preference to cases for those who are incarcerated first,” he explains. According to McCann it is likely that Joe will take the stand and the trial will begin sometime before June of 2013. The prosecution doesn’t think the case will be a hard one to win. “It’s not going to be a very long case to try,” McCann added. “It should only take about two weeks. The fact pattern is not complex.” And it seems the prosecution is pretty sure Joe Giudice will serve jail time. “I think we have a strong case with strong evidence.”
