RHONJ's Teresa Giudice Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison

Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice hold hands while arriving at Newark Federal Court to await sentencing on a variety of financial fraud charges on Thursday morning (October 2) in Newark, N.J.

The couple from The Real Housewives of New Jersey pled guilty earlier this year to charges including conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud for allegedly using fake pay stubs, tax returns, and W-2 forms to make their incomes look higher so they could obtain $5 million in mortgages and other loans.

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison.

Joe received a sentencing of 41 months in a federal prison and he must also pay back $414,588.90 in restitution. He also must enter an alcohol treatment program in prison.

The judge reportedly will stagger the sentences so that one parent can be with the couple’s four children – Gia, 13, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5 – while the other is in prison. It is being said that Teresa will serve her sentence first.

    I feel bad for their kids.

  • ….

    YES!!! I thought she was going to get off with probation or house arrest. She needs to learn a lesson and stop spending other people’s money once and for all.

  • okie

    Damn! that’s too bad.

    Taurus women love money too much.

  • Ter

    OMG. They let murders g free! Poor Giudice family!
    God bless Theresa,joe n the children. Now let them get on with their life’s in peace!

  • Barbara

    just watch and see them go all out for the coming Holidays….they are not too bright

  • hahahahaha

    Hey…I got out my tiny violin…..And ENOUGH about the kids…They’re probably going to be better off with others during this time than these two losers.

  • Go away

    @Ter: Why don’t you learn English, then shut the hell up.

  • jackie

    You know, was all the flash and big house and fancy clothes and all of that worth lying and landing yourself in jail? One day her kids are going to be so ashamed to know how selfish and greedy their parents were. Just because they have kids or are TV personalities doesn’t mean they shouldn’t pay the price. Lesson learned I hope. Live within your means people.

  • lol

    I just wish he were deported after serving his time. He’s not even an American citizen, but he was ripping off American taxpayers, then not even showing remorse for it. TOTAL LOSER THUG.

  • ya

    I just want to get a razor and shave off that nasty forehead.

  • Natalie

    I feel sorry for their daughters. Teresa and Joe were too selfish to think of them and the repercussions their actions would have.

  • Gross

    Does she get to take all that ugly hair with her?

  • NYC

    I cannot get over this! It’s outrageous! They got off easy.
    Staggering the sentences? WTF?
    Then, to top it off after sentencing, they got into a Mercedes Benz!
    These 2 will never learn a lesson in any of this and they will milk the publicity and make as much $$$$ as they can from it. As for those of you feeling sorry for them, they should have thought about their actions a long time ago. Nothing will make them understand what they have done wrong.
    A disgrace.
