Joe Giudice Caught On Camera -- And It's Not Reality TV

Joe Giudice Caught On Camera
The never-ending criminal saga involving Teresa Giudice’s husband burly Joe continues…

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.

A source close to the case tells 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.

Keep in mind that Joe rejected a plea deal of a possible five years in jail in order to try his luck at beating the charges at trial, now set for July 15.

In typical Joe style, he’s not worried about the outcome.

“Of course, Joe is denying everything, saying it's bulls**t and believes that the Department of Motor Vehicles doesn't hold on to footage that long and they have nothing on him," added the source.

Joe’s attorney Miles Feinstein confirmed to CB! his office was presented with new discovery from the Department of Motor Vehicles. He hasn’t had a chance to view it yet, but downplays the potential evidence.

“It’s my understanding there may be some grainy photos of individuals at the Department of Motor Vehicles. It may be Joe and other individuals and it may not,” he told CB!

“What I have heard about this is that it’s not going to impact the trial in any way.”

Other than this latest legal fiasco, Joe has a slew of past run-ins with the law (which have oftentimes landed him in the slammer.)

On January 14, 2010, he crashed into a pole in the early morning hours and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, careless driving and failure to maintain a traffic lane in Montville Township, NJ. All of that and he was taken to the hospital and had outstanding arrest warrants.

In September 2010, he was sentenced to 10 days in jail for driving with a suspended license.

And on February 23, 2011, Joe and co-stars Christopher and Albie Manzo were detained while on vacay in the Dominican Republic after being involved in a brutal bar brawl.

Oh, and he's been trying to climb his way out of $11 million in debt since withdrawing his much-publicized bankruptcy filing in 2011.
