Joe Giudice has been sentenced to 41 months behind bars.
The former pizza parlor owner and husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice arrived (looking “serious and sad,” an observer tells E! News) around 9 a.m. today in federal court, holding hands on his way inside with his wife.
The couple - who pleaded guilty in March to various counts of financial fraud - appeared before U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas at 10 a.m. ET.
She at first went over the “glaring omissions” - from cars to home furnishings to insurance policies - on the Giudice's financial disclosure forms, as the prosecutor argued these represented a "pattern of deception, dishonesty and concealment."
