Teresa Giudice Sues Former Lawyer, Blames Him for Prison Sentence

Teresa Giudice has filed a lawsuit against her former bankruptcy attorney James Kridel and she blames him for getting her sentenced to prison.

The 43-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s new malpractice lawyer Carlos Cuevas says that Kridel‘s “legal malpractice is the reason why she is incarcerated.”

Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she plead guilty to a slew of fraud charges. She started her sentence at the beginning of the year and will be released in late December before serving the rest of her sentence at home.

“She went to jail because she committed crimes, which were not participated in by me. She had about 2.5 hours of testimony before she went to jail where she took full responsibility for the crimes,” Kridel told People in a statement. “However, I suppose things have changed in her mind. I have read the transcript and the judge made it very clear that she had originally decided not to send her to jail, but because she had falsified her assets before the sentencing she decided to send her to jail.”

“She was chastised by the judge well after I represented her. There were failures to file income taxes, which occurred many years before we knew her. Her falsifying W2′s for mortgages – that has nothing to do with her bankruptcy,” he added.

    She’s a nasty delusional Narcisssist; of course it wasn’t her fault. Carlos Cuevas is an idiot to represent her. He’ll never get a penny to do so.

    Tre is just a straight-up criminal. People have said she’s “delusional” or she’s “crazy” but she isn’t….she’s just criminally stupid. No amount of medication or counseling will compel this woman to take accountability for her actions because that’s not where her issues lie. Her problems all stem from being QUITE dim and from being arrogant enough to think people will fall for her bullshit. Also, she’s hateful and superficial.

    “I’m not responsible for the crimes I committed, I’m a semi celeb and should get off scott free, it’s not that I didn’t do the crime, its just that my lawyer wasnt good enough to get me off”

    She blame everybody else but herself. She is delusional and crazy and plain stupid.
