Teresa Giudice's Prison Sentence Begins, Will Last 15 Months

Teresa Giudice has officially started her prison sentence and she will remain there for the next 15 months.

The 42-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sentenced to the prison time after she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.

Teresa turned herself in to authorities on Monday morning (January 5) shortly after 3am, her attorney told WNBC 4 New York. She will be serving her time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, which just so happens to be the prison that inspired Orange Is the New Black.

Teresa‘s husband Joe Giudice will be serving a 41-month sentence for fraud charges once she is released. It is believed that he will likely be deported when he finishes his prison term as he is not a U.S. citizen.
