“Joe Giudice surrendered himself to the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix today at 12 p.m. to begin serving his sentence. His brother, his sister and several other members of the Giudice family, as well as myself, were present when he turned himself in to the prison, including Teresa. It was obviously a very emotional day, but this is a very strong family with a tremendous support system and they will get through this, just as they did when Teresa was away,” his lawyer said in a statement (via People).
Joe is supposed to serve 41 months in prison. Teresa was just released from prison in late December after spending nearly a year incarcerated.
