Teresa Giudice and Husband Surrender to Authorities, Released on $500K Bond

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice walked hand-in-hand this morning into a Newark, New Jersey courtroom to answer charges levied against them yesterday by a federal prosecutor.

The reality stars are facing the possibility of 50 years in prison for counts that range from mail and bank fraud to lying about their income when applying for bankruptcy.

Witnesses tell Us Weekly that Teresa and Joe were "very solemn" throughout the hearing, looking "professional" as they appeared before Judge Cathy Waldor.

As for the results of the mandatory court date?

  • The Giudice are each free on $500,000 bail.
  • They have to forfeit their passports and are restricted to travel in New York and New Jersey.
  • Joe, who is actually not a U.S. citizen, will be subjected to drug testing.
  • These Real Housewives of New Jersey stars are now scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in New Jersey on August 14.

Will they go to jail for 50 years? We highly doubt it.

But are they in legitimate legal trouble? Oh yes.

They all should get what they deserve. There are people out there working hard to make a living and then there are people that think they can screw over the government, I don't think so...

This isn't true, Tre and Joe are being railroaded because of their fame. Even if they did make a mistake they should be given a pass, they are hard working good peeps. Forget the drama it's all for TV, actually it's the fault of Andy Cohen and Bravo for putting T and Joe in their current mess. Lets all pray that the government forgives the Guidices for any crime they might have committed.

Andy Cohen and Bravo? Really? The government forgive? They have already falsely filed bankruptcy, in which they had to pay back. While they lived in their 5 million dollar mansion "investment property" in New Jersey, A Jersey shore house and own a home in Italy. Bankrupt my ass...

All of this financial mess started BEFORE the Housewives gig. It's all "Juicy" and "Tre"...no one else to blame. The guy isn't even a U.S. citizen, he runs a construction company in Jersey, cheats on his financial papers, cheated when it came to his drunk driving conviction, cheats on his wife on the phone on the air, Tre produces faked W-2 Forms. And don't forget they lied about their "Bravo" income. Tell me again how this is Andy's fault? These are so-called adults who thought they could swindle anyone and everyone. (And face it...how many are thinking "mob connections" here as far as "Juicy" goes?) The gov't should "forgive" them just as they would "forgive" anyone else. Deport the fugly "Juicy" and make them both serve their time!!!

Why isn't Juicy Joe a citizen???? That's terrible living here all these years and cheating the government. I think Teresa won't spend anytime in jail, maybe some community service and a hefty fine. On the other hand, Joe should have the book thrown at him! He knew exactly what he was doing!

They will not spend ONE MINUTE in jail. If they can post that kind of bond....they can pay their way outta trouble.

Your ignorance is astounding. And for the record, how many Jews are actually in trouble of late? That's right, not many. Had they actually been Jewish they'd likely of had a good accountant. And lawyer. Check the prison rolls. Not many Jews percentage wise making up the prison population....

Joy: You are a moron. Teresa is always saying: "Thank you Jesus." I don't know any 'Jews' that run around saying that. By the way Giudice is not a Jewish sir name. And Joy, don't blame others for your ignorance. Remember "Ignorance is the root of all evil." and "Love hurts no one but Hate hurts everyone." Maybe you should read your bible and stop hating others for your short comings. . .

Andy Cohen is the Jew that caused all of Teresa and Joes problems.

@ All+P

Wow, All+P! You have some serious denial issues. Andy Cohen's beliefs have nothing to do with Juicy Joe's or Teresa's stupidity. They're supposed to be adult enough to figure things out on their own. They figured they could swindle other people and cheat the gov't. And you seem to have lost sight that the majority of their sh-- happened well before they met up with Andy. They're plain LOSERS!
