Joe Giudice Caught On Camera -- And It's Not Reality TV
To jog your memory, this has to do with the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s 2011 case involving charges he fraudulently obtained a driver's license -- which could land him behind bars for up to 10 years.Celebuzz there is new evidence that could be damaging to the reality star.
“Joe is caught on surveillance camera walking into the motor vehicle's office with papers in his hand on the same day the driver's license was issued in his brother's name,” said the source.
The legal drama started when NJ authorities accused the 42-year-old of trying to pull the wool over the state of New Jersey's eyes by using his younger brother Pietro's marriage and birth certificates to get a license after his had been suspended following a DWI charge in June 2010.
“Cops think he’ll get at least two years," added the source.
