Teresa Giudice arrived in a New Jersey court today to enter a plea on her two most recent fraud charges, which were handed down earlier in the week. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star unsurprisingly pled not guilty to the new counts of bank fraud, which brought the total number of indictments against her and her hubby Joe to 41. FORTY-ONE, people. This has to be some sort of record, right?
The reality star was due in court today following the latest charges against her. Just like her attorney said she would on Tuesday, Teresa entered a not guilty plea to the new counts. He also said the reality star “looks forward to defending herself at the trial, scheduled for February 24, 2014. Beyond that, we will answer all of the charges in court, not out.”
The two new counts stem from allegations that the couple submitted a bogus mortgage loan application for $361,000. Court documents also reveal that Teresa Giudice allegedly lied about her employment status to get the loan, saying that she was making $15,000 a month as a real estate agent. Prosecutors are calling BS on that one, too, saying that Teresa was “not employed outside the home at the time.” In addition to allegedly lying about employment status and filing fake loan docs, the pair is also accused of mail and wire fraud, tax evasion and a bunch of other stuff that the IRS frowns on.
The two Real Housewives of New Jersey stars arrived at the courthouse earlier today hand in hand, showing a united front and giving a silent F you to all their haters. The duo has maintained their innocence from day 1, but if convicted, they could be facing up to 50 years behind bars as well as a $1 million fine.
What are your thoughts on the Giudice’s innocence? Do you think they’ll be convicted, and if they are, what kind of sentence are they facing? Tell us in the comments!
