Real Housewives Stars Face Real Trouble for Alleged Fraud
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice are facing very real trouble after pleading guilty to several charges of their 41-count indictment on various fraud and tax charges, according to US Weekly. Originally, the couple had pled not guilty to two charges in November.
“Teresa and Joe Giudice have arranged a plea agreement with prosecutors in their federal case,” an insider told US Weekly “The couple will plead guilty to several but not all 41 of the charges, and both will appear in court on Tuesday with their lawyers.”
The two were found out back in July 2013 after conspiring to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud, and making false statements on loan applications.
“Reports that Teresa and Joe have agreed to a deal that involves set definitions of fines, jail time or probation are inaccurate,” the insider added. The celebrity couple is expected to release a statement on Tuesday.
