Teresa Giudice has never been particularly articulate and her appearance on The View this week to promote the upcoming season premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey was no exception. She said the past year has been “amazing.” She also said she got a good education on out country’s legal system. I suppose she learned that it is against the law to lie to the bank to get money to buy shoes and handbags.
In case you have been living under a rock, this past “amazing” year Teresa and Joe have pled guilty to federal charges and just last month Joe’s father died, I believe of a heart attack at 63. Teresa is facing a sentence of 21 -27 months, you can read my entire breakdown of the plea agreement here. Joe is facing a sentence of somewhere between 37-46 months based on his plea deal. You can read my breakdown of the plea deal in detail here. Joe also faces potential deportation, but I really don’t think that will happen despite some of my commenters screaming that it most certainly will. We will see. And as always the judge is not required to accept the plea deal and can basically sentence them to whatever he wants, but in general in these federal cases the judge tends to stay within or close to the guidelines.
