As we previously reported, Teresa Giudice plead guilty toÂ bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud and other charges following aÂ 41-count indictment on Tuesday. According to the plea deal, Teresa is facingÂ 27 months in prison, and JoeÂ could get 46 months and is likely be deported back to Italy.Â Now, RadarOnline is reporting the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is hoping to serve her time under house arrest.
A source tells Radar,Â â€œBefore Teresa is formally sentenced by the judge, she will meet with the United States Probation Department and a report will be prepared. The report will outline recommendations for sentencing for the judge to consider and one of those items will include if house arrest is suitable for Teresa.”
The insider continues,Â â€œThe fact that she has four children and is the breadwinner for the family will drastically help her when it comes to determining if house arrest is appropriate.Â You can count on Teresa to plead her case to the judge during her sentencing hearingâ€¦ She really hopes to serve her prison sentence at home because the idea of going to prison absolutely terrifies her.â€
