‘Real Housewives’ Teresa Giudice Will Be Home from Prison for Christmas
She’s earned a spot on the “nice” list.
The AP confirms that Teresa Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be released on Wednesday (Dec. 23, 2015) from Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut. She will return home to her husband Joe Giudice and their four daughters in Montville, NJ, where she will remain on home confinement until Feb. 5. Teresa’s attorney, James Leonard Jr., says that his client is “upbeat and looking forward to coming home” after being behind bars since January.
The Giudices pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud last year, admitting that they had hid assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitted false loan applications to get $5 million in mortgages and construction loans. Joe also pleaded guilty to tax fraud, and will commence his 41-month sentence come March of 2015 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix, NJ. He is not an American citizen and runs the risk of being deported to Italy upon his release.
