Oh for fucks sake. Really New Jersey? The plea deal was finished months ago. There was already a two month postponement. How long does it take to get from plea deal to incarceration in the fucking Garden State? This is just embarrassing. Teresa and Joe Giudice now have new sentencing date of October 2, 2014. Don’t hold your breath on that being a firm date either.
According to NorthJersey.com: (My comments in purple)
“Typically, sentencings get postponed so that everybody involved can be fully prepared,” said Henry E. Klingeman, Teresa Giudice’s attorney. “The court is waiting on information from all sides – the defense, the government and probation – so it’s been postponed by a couple of weeks.”
Oh horseshit. “The Court” is ready, the government is ready. Is Joe Giudice still on probation? Those records take an hour. It’s the defense that is pussyfooting around and drawing this shit out. Did Klingeman convince the judge to let Teresa film the reunion to go toward her restitution? What on earth could the defense need more time for at this point. THE PLEA DEAL IS DONE! I understand the defense wants to make a case for Teresa to get probation, but for the love of God the plea deals have been done FOR SIX MONTHS! Is the defense attorney still trying to come up with a reason for Tre to get probation? Is two more weeks going to help somehow?
In March, they each pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and three counts of bankruptcy fraud. They admitted concealing assets, testifying falsely and making false declarations in a court filing. Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to one count of failure to file a tax return in 2004.
Under their plea agreements, Joe Giudice, 43, could be sentenced to a minimum of three years, but less than four years in prison. Teresa Giudice, 41, would face a term of 21 to 27 months. Klingeman said he intends to seek probation for Teresa Giudice. “The plea agreement permits us to do so and it’s certainly a just sentence under the circumstances,” he said.
If you get Teresa house arrest, let alone probation, you might have actually earned your six figure paycheck, Klingeman. I am so ready for these two to get sentenced. We have a slew of Bravolebrities to lock up, and quite a few of them are in New Jersey. Let’s get the damn ball rolling. At this rate we’ll have another last Giudice Family Christmas special.
Are the wheels of justice even round in New Jersey?
