Teresa And Joe Giudice Expected To Plead Guilty, Working On Plea Deal With U.S. Attorney


Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are expected to plead guilty for some charges on Tuesday, ABC News is reporting. Teresa is expected to plead guilty to four charges, including at least one count of fraud. She is potentially facing two years in prison, but the final decision will be made by the judge at sentencing.

The Giudice’s 41-count indictment includes; conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

The couple’s attorney’s are reportedly working on a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney. The plea deal will not keep Joe, who’s not a US citizen but from Italy, from being deported. After conviction, US immigration officials will decide if they want to proceed with sending Joe back to Italy.

In Touch claims the New Jersey couple accepted a plea deal offer, where Joe will serve a minimum of five years in prison, but Teresa will escape jail time with a maximum of five years probation. The couple may also be required to  pay $11 million in restitution.

RumorFix reports that Bravo doesn’t want to miss a minute of Teresa’s legal drama. Within hours of the news that she will be pleading guilty, cameras reportedly appeared outside of her home to capture her reaction.

This news comes as a surprise, being that Teresa’s attorney, Henry Klingeman, originally said that she planned to plead not guilty to the charges.

Klingeman declined to comment.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
