Update On Joe Giudice’s Case! Wants More Time To Negotiate Plea Deal

May 30, 2012 |By Continue Reading


The drama never stops for RHONJ star Teresa Giudice. Not only is she dealing with her family and friends but reality is hitting hard with her hubby Joe Giudice who make a cameo yesterday in state courts where attorneys told a judge they need more time to negotiate a possible resolution to criminal charges pending against Giudice!

From NorthJersey:
“How much time are you looking for? You’ve already had a lot of time, to be honest,” Superior Court Judge Greta Gooden Brown in Paterson told Clifton Attorney Miles Feinstein, who is defending Giudice against charges of wrongful identity use and impersonation.

Feinstein requested another four to six weeks, to which Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay Mc Cann did not object. Gooden Brown ordered all parties to return June 27, when there could be a final plea offer or a trial date set.

Giudice, 42, standing beside his lawyer during the brief status conference, did not speak.
Authorities allege Giudice obtained a license at the Motor Vehicle Commission office in Paterson in June 2010 using marriage and birth certificates that belong to his brother,

Pietro Giudice. Giuseppe’s license was suspended at the time.
Giudice was fined, had his license suspended, was ordered to undergo counseling and served 10 days in the Morris County jail after flipping his truck on a Montville road in January of 2010.

At the time of his sentence in that case, the prosecution called attention to 39 points that Giudice had accumulated prior to the crash. Those points, prosecutors said, were accrued through such violations as speeding, leaving the scene of an accident, careless driving, failing to maintain lamps, failing to wear a seat belt, driving with a cell phone and failing to pay parking tickets.

Prosecutors began to investigate the brothers when Pietro Giudice, 39, was pulled over during a routine traffic stop in Lincoln Park. When the police officer ran Pietro’s information through an onboard computer, the search produced Giuseppe’s photograph, authorities have said.

Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice has made frequent appearances on “Real Housewives” and is the husband of “housewife” Teresa Giudice. Teresa also recently appeared as a resilient contestant on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Giuseppe was indicted on the charges he currently faces in December. He faces 10 years in prison if convicted of the second-degree charge, and 18 months if convicted of the other, a fourth-degree charge. Giudice has already rejected a plea offer by the state of five years in prison, with no restrictions on when he would become eligible for parole, according to attorneys.

McCann said that at least some sort of jail time will be part of any plea offer, as the charges are too serious to allow a probation-only sentence.

Following the proceedings, Feinstein expressed frustration that people are making remarks about the case on “The Real Housewives” episodes.
“The matter will be tried in a court of law, not in the press or on the New Jersey ‘Housewives’ show,” Feinstein said. “During several episodes of the ‘Housewives,’ persons appearing have discussed Joe’s case. They have a right to do so, but they should know better. They know nothing about the actual facts of the case and they should realize that the charges are mere allegations and nothing more. Comments made by those people can only prejudice Joe and taint the prospective jury pool. We are looking forward to Joe’s vindication.”

He had 39 points on his license BEFORE his drunk driving arrest!!! and THEN driving on a suspended – obviously he has NO REGARD for the law…THEN he tries to submit false information to a government agency and you don’t think this man is a danger to society? He is reckless and lawless and a drunk. Honestly, I see his controlling, abusive and addictive behavior taking its toll on Tre and the girls. I honestly think she would be better off if he “went away” – a break from some one with addiction is a good thing. I bet they… Read more »

I think it would be a horrible thing to send Joe to jail. Not because I don’t think what he did was wrong – but because he doesn’t pose a danger to society and the emotional hardship the children & Teresa would have to endure is not reflective of the purpose of our justice system. What Joe did was wrong, irresponsible and foolish – and Joe knows all of those things. I’m sure he is completely stressed at the prospect of serving time and the whole purpose of serving time is either to 1) protect the public – which doesn’t… Read more »

Annabelle, I have yet to see Joey truly parent so I cannot say he is a good father. Joe Giudice does take care of his children. He loves them and they know it. I didn’t like the fight with Teresa or the instance where he chipped his tooth last season, but in all I think he is a good father. Joey started the drama in season 3 in front of his children. I do not think that is great parenting. I see Joey and Joe as two men that love their children. If Edwards can get off from embezzlement and… Read more »

Belle, I agree with you. If it were possible to settle this with fines + community service + suspension of his license I think that would be adequate punishment. However, I do not believe McCann is making this sort of analogy. I wish people would make this sort of analogy and we would not have such over-crowding of our jail system. Let us wait and see. I think we might be surprised as to the sentence and the actual time served. Do not count Feinstein out he is a good attorney. I do not feel Joe is a danger to… Read more »

I feel badly for Teresa. She married a cheat, liar, fraud. I would have dumped this bozo a long time ago; she is obviously a very loyal person. It is Teresa who is keeping this family going with all of her hard work. Hopefully, good things will keep happening for her; she is showing her girls that hard work pays off.

I wonder if someone from the cast reported to the police that Joe was driving on a suspended license and that’s why he was pulled over. Or even worse, knew he had obtained a license using his brother’s ID and called the tip into the police. Why was Joe pulled over on the day that the cop ran the ID and ‘discovered’ that the photo and name didn’t match?

You are an idiot. Samantha or whoever you are. We do not know if he is habitual offender. The question is of what? What you are saying is patently stupid.

I do not know if there is an admission on Joe’s part. I don’t think there is because his brother received 10 days in jail + suspension + counseling. I think Joe is denying the act, which is possible. There could be a screw-up at DMV itself. I am not saying… Read more »

You cannot use reports that Joe Giudice was driving as probable cause for the arrest. The arrest was due to his brother being pulled over for at a routine stop. There was no mention of police pulling over Joe Giudice with a fake driver’s license, if there was then it would part of a separate area of the indictment. Right now there is only speculation that he use it and I firmly believe he did. However, when you don’t have that in evidence there is no grounds for that as part of the criminal indictment.

You seem awfully angry and personally invested over a situation that has nothing to do with you. I think most ppl agree he ought to be punished somehow. I don’t think I’ve read one comment that suggested he deserves to get off scott-free, just that 10 yrs might be excessive. Also, I think most ppl ( at least on here ) are not in fact Teresa and Juicy disciples who believe they cannot or have not done anything wrong. Most ppl are upset by the HYPOCRISY of the other ladies and by BRAVO’S business practices.

Thanks for posting this article. I was wondering the status of the case. Joe Giudice thinks he is above the law & he deserves jail time, community service & then parole for a few years. He got caught this time! Ooops. It would have happened eventually. You do the crime (in this case CRIMES), you pay the time. I doubt he’ll serve 10 years but he needs at least a year behind bars. What a selfish, arrogant man to do this to his wife & children however ppl make mistakes & hopefully he will learn from these after he pays… Read more »

Personally, I feel 30-60 days of house arrest with an ankle bracelet is enough for this. I, personally feel like Teresa and Joe’s parents will be there for her in full force if he does go to jail. I just don’t think sending a father to jail for this type of crime for that length of time benefits anyone. His girls will see him being punished and learn a lesson and believe me, house arrest with 4 kids will be no picnic. I do believe he should be punished. He did the crime, he should do some time.

Here is my professional assumption. Again, it is just an assumption. I don’t know anyone or anything about this case except what I have read above. They are going to led him plead down due to the fact that the prosecutor knows he can’t get a fair jury trial anywhere in NJ. Due to the fact that the prosecutor knows this, he will offer him the least amount of time allowed by law, perhaps even time served with probation. His license will be revoked for a number of years, or even permanantly, and everyone will go home. That’s why the… Read more »

I’m stuck on the number 39. How in the hell does someone rack up 39 points?
Joe, that is NOT ok!!! People lose loved ones in accidents from careless driver’s all the time.
He doesn’t deserve to go to prison for 10 years, but I think some jail time is in order if only to scare the sh*t out of him. And personally I think he should do community service at the county morgue. Getting up close and personal with the result of car accidents might be a good way to get him to drive more carefully.

Saying that….I hope Tre and the girls have family and friends that will stand by and support them emotionally while he is gone. The witches on the show sure wont be there for them…that we all know!

Nobody is above the law, and sometimes, rock bottom is the only thing that will convince someone that they need to make huge, life changes. I also hope that if convictions are handed down in the Signature Apparel lawsuit, the Lauritas have a strong support system in place, as well. If they’re guilty, Chris, Jacqueline et al should be prepared to pay the price for their actions, too.

Mary C, I understand your belief, but we only see this side. He won’t get a year in prison. Even the deal that the prosecutor gave was not really 5 years…the second part is the most interesting is “with no restrictions on when he would become eligible for parole” When the prosecution write that in parole can come even 30 days later. That is when you receive suspended sentencing. You have your client plead to the plead charge and negotiate on suspension which the prosecution would ask for during sentencing.

Joe is very cocky (and always was),but he’s not a terrible guy. Did he know what he was doing? Absolutely ! He risked a lot and lost,now he’s got to pay. I get he doesn’t want to be a rat,but his excuses are ridicules. In NJ,to replace a license you need your birth certificate/ss card/marriage certificate, how did he take that from Pete without him knowing. He’s gotten away with a lot of “stuff”,now he pays.Hard for the kids,but she’ll be fine. She has a good support system. Joe needs to go “away” as we say in Jersey 🙂

Hooray Anne! You said exactly what I was thinking. Joe has had this attitude since S1 that he was above the law. He got caught THIS TIME & now must pay for his crimes. 39 points is serious. Regardless if it was non-violent in nature he deserves some jail time & community service. I also agree w/you about Teresa’s lack of discipline skills but that can be fixed. Joe needs to serve his time while Teresa betters herself & her girls. Then Teresa can decide if she wants to carry on a relationship w/an ex-convict.

It depends on the plea arrangement. This could be treated as a misdemeanor, which is not a felony so he wouldn’t be a convict. But, that is going to based on the final plea arrangement.

I think Teresa is too “old school” for a divorce even if she realizes her life would be better without him while he was away.

I’m 100% Team Teresa, but as a wife I know I’m not always easy to live with (just as most couples – sometimes our spouses get on our nerves, because no 1 is perfect) and I’m sure she isn’t always easy to live with either.

There are no points in NJ for DUI. It is a traffic offense. He likely or the suspension for pleading to the DUI.

I am almost positive that NJ does issue hardship licenses, however I also think that with 39 points on his license and a DWI no judge in their right mind would agree to it. I’m truly sorry for T with all of this but the truth is, if he got 39 points worth of convictions on his license, apparently he didn’t think the rules applied to him, and how much did he get away with… It’s not like he made a mistake once and they’re being hard on him…his alleged stealing of his brother’s ID is just another instance of… Read more »

I will say it again…I WAS NOT BASHING GIA….I MISSPOKE….oh, hell, why am I even trying to argue the point….take your pints of blood, and I dare you to look through every post here and find mine and tell me if at any time any where in any way I was against T, J and the kids or if, really, I just misspoke this time.

Kids do feel the stress of what is going on.. But this is true for every family. I think what is going on w/the Guidices is a shame because they are a good family who is getting a bad rap. No one is claiming anyone is perfect or evil. But prosecutors LOVE to find targets to make examples of. Bravo just HAD to make shit comments about it on the reunion and then in Season 4. WTF they think they are? And then Tres’ brother and SIL,, eww I can’t stand those two. Gia is half grown sensitive and smart.… Read more »

Who wonders why Gia is a mess? Not me and not alot of people, Gia isn’t a mess, she is 10. What were you like when you were 10? Were u on a successful gymnastics and dance team, were you getting straight A’s in school? Were you in a music video? Probably not, but neither was I. Gia is a little Teresa, and her mom is an example that I would want to look up to, she before the show was a loving wife and mother, that grew up with traditional old italian values. Now yes her mom may be… Read more »

When I saw the “Gia Meltdown” scene, I chalked it up to her being overly tired, in a stressful situation and puberty. (Although, Gia was right. They did cheat.) I was annoyed at Caroline’s comment that “Teresa was teaching her the wrong thing” for so many different reasons. How many of us have been in an ackward situation when our child misbehaved? A lot of us and it’s stressful enough without cameras rolling on top of it. Your real friends know how to deal with it properly and not how Jac and Caroline did.

Whoa, backup girls, I’m on your side…I’m not battering Gia nor am I maligning anyones parenting. My only point, and maybe I didn’t express myself correctly, and if not, sorry, is that Gia because she is the oldest hears and understands whats going on around her. Sheesh… Yes I said she was a mess, OK, used the wrong words… I wasn’t specifically referring to the field day thing, but also the fact that her uncle pulled her into that awful conversation, and that she was aware of other things she heard her dad say and responded to in one car… Read more »

Also, none of us had or are the perfect parent, so we have no right to judge other people’s parenting. Especially, on tv, because we’re not seeing every minute of everyday only what is edited in. As adults, we all have good days and bad and kids do to.

NJ has no hardship license for DUI or DWI. DUI or DWI carry no points in NJ. DUI is a traffic violation. It is not criminal in NJ, which is one of the few states that still has it that way. There is no arrest with a DUI because there is no finger printing, that is the big difference arrests. It may seem as if Joe was arrested for DUI because of the handcuffs, but it is not an arrest it is not criminal. The criminal charges are fraud, misrep,etc for the fake license and driving while suspended license. Now… Read more »

This is soo absurd! You can kill Michael Jackson and only get 2 years max & Joe is facing 10 years! America, we have the best judicial system…yeah right, only in America!

He deserves maybe 30 days in jail, counseling and and parole for two years at best. House arrest is a fair option, too. Give him his own license back and he won’t have ‘borrow’ another. 🙂

He might get like six month to a year which works out on the lesser sentence with the week in jail he served to 81 days with good behavior. Fines likely about 2-5k and suspension of license for 2 years.

I didn’t read the article yet. I’m just going off of other people’s comments and what I remember about this. I could be totally wrong, but I think they are considering this a big offence, because of 9/11. Had he been someone else and done something really bad everyone here would agree to a stiffer penalty. I’m also wondering if, because he is somewhat well known they are looking to make an example of him. Even though I don’t think many people do what he did. IMO he should get the equavalent sentence of a person with priors under the… Read more »

I disagree with him being treated the same as someone under 21 with priors because he’s a full blown adult and should know better. But I agree with Jennifer above 60-90s works fine.

Lots of people do the fake I.D. At least they use to back when i was in college. Its how underage people get fake I.D.s to get into bars. Everyone i knew in college had one! This was back when they didnt keep the pictures in a database though and the IDs were never used for driving, bank accounts etc. I think idenity theft has evolved so much that they HAD to put stiffer laws into effect and he is just stuck in the net.

It is different fake ID. If he went into DMV and brought several pieces of ID to get a real driver’s license it fraud (identify theft are of fraud).

You make a great point. Let’s hope the judge and jury remember the spirit of the law when they sentence him instead of trying to make an example out of him because he’s on tv.

THEY ARE ALL SPEAKING OPENLY ABOUT TERESA AND JOE’S CASES ON CAMERA WHEN THEY NEED TO KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT. THEY ARE WORST THAN RATS BECAUSE THEY WERE FRIENDS AND ARE FAMILY. MELISSA AND JOE SHOULD HANG THEIR HEADS IN SHAME! OLD SCHOOL ITALIANS KNOW TO KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT ABOUT COURT CASES ESPECIALLY IF THEIR ARENT THEIR OWN. CANT WAIT FOR KARMA TO CRASH DOWN ALL OF THEIR GLASS HOUSES SINCE THEY ALL HAVE OPEN CASES.

Wow..39 Points..how many can you have and still drive? I do wish him the best. I agree he broke the law a few times and that’s how he got 39 points. I hope he gets house arrest before jail time.

I thought you were suspended after 10 pts! Obviously im wrong LOL Or maybe these points accumulated with the accident? 10pts for DUI, 6 for leaving the scene of an accident. 6 for speeding which caused the accident etc..

It seems that he is being over-charged and the prosecution is seeking too much jail time because he is a celebrity. Celebrity can cut both ways, getting people swag, good seats at a restaurant and so on, but sometimes it is an ambitious prosecutors ticket to publicity and advancement as seems to be the case here. Eager to prove that they are not influenced or intimidated by celebrity, they go too far in the other direction. I agree that if he did the crime, he should not get away with it and could expect community service, house arrest, 30 days,… Read more »

He is being overcharged, but the prosecutor needs to make it look like he is standing firm with a celebrity. It is a doubled-edged sword.

I’ve thought about how I would feel if this was just some random guy and not Joe Giudice and my feelings are the same. The jails are so over crowded and it is the tax payers who pay to keep these people with food, shelter, programs, schooling, medical expenses and recreation. I think house arrest would be best, let him pay his own expenses while a prisoner in his own house. After his house arrest, force him to do community services, put him in a position where HE has to deal with the repercussions of other people who have committed… Read more »

When the idenity theft law was put in effect im sure it was intended for people who were stealing idenities with credit cards, jobs, bank accounts etc.. It reminds me of case where a high school kid who was 18 and in his senior year was caught having sex with his 16 year old gf who was a JR… He was arrested on for child abuse and other various crimes for having teenage consentual sex! He lost his football scholorship when he was sent to prison for 3 years. This kids life was destroyed on a technicality and he has… Read more »
