Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her hubby Joe have been charged with 39 counts of fraud. Both are pleading not guilty but the case has officially been postponed until next year!
They were originally scheduled to stand trial on October 8 but a judge decided to set a new trail date of Feb 24, 2014 according to North Jersey. For those of you who don’t know, Joe Giudice is already standing trial on state trials and U.S. District Judge Esther Salas thought it would be better to move his other case back saying, “the failure to grant a continuance would unreasonably deny him continuity of counsel and the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation in this case.”
Joe Giudice has a court case set for October 28th after he presented marriage and birth certificates that belonged to his brother to have a drivers license. Joe license was suspended after he got into a major accident flipping his pickup due to be intoxicated.
If Teresa and Joe are found guilty of these charges, they can face up to 30 years in prison.
