Joe Giudice was in court yesterday when he rejected a plea offer of five years in state prison! Instead he will do a trial. Joe’s lawyer told the judge, “We will prepare for a trial.” According to North Jersey, the trial date is set to October 1st.
To make matters worse, Joe Giudice was late to his hearing because he got lost! He apologized to the judge saying he got lost in the underground parking lot of the Center City Mall which is a block away from the courthouse.
Joe’s lawyer believes that because Joe has no prior criminal convictions, he should be eligible for probation.
So was Teresa there to stand by her hubby? Nope! Joe’s lawyer asked her to stay home fearing that would create a media circus. However, Joe’s lawyer added “she’s a 100% behind him!”
Thoughts on the case?
