Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice have both pleaded guilty to massive bank fraud and tax evasion, and will face years in the slammer.
The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star and her husband pleaded guilty after negotiating a plea deal that saw them evading decades in jail.
According to the new deal Teresa pled guilty to 4 counts (which include conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud) and Joe to 5 counts (same as Teresa, plus failure to file tax returns). Teresa faces up to 27 months in jail, and Joe – who is an Italian citizen – faces 46 months and may be deported.
The couple was previously indicted on more than 40 counts of fraud spanning from 2001 to 2011 and were facing up to 50 years in jail.
