As Teresa and Joe Giudice await their sentencing after pleading guilty to multiple fraud charges, TMZ has learned that the couple will be asking the judge to serve their time separately, so one parent will be with their four daughters. Teresa and Joe’s lawyer Miles Feinstein tells the site, that the couple will ask the judge to stagger their sentences (serve them consecutively rather than concurrently, for the sake of their four daughters (aged four, eight, nine, and thirteen).
Teresa plead guilty to four counts of fraud and Joe to five. Teresa is facing 21 to 27 months in prison and Joe faces up to 46 months.
Feinstein is confident the judge will accept their request. He also tells TMZ that this is the best outcome he could have hoped for, considering Teresa and Joe were originally facing up to 100+ years in prison [combined].
