‘Real Housewives’ Star Teresa Giudice Reports To Same Prison As Hill, Helmsley.

Teresa Giudice, a cast member of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” is scheduled to report to a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut, on Monday morning to begin serving a 15-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud. She and husband Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice pleaded guilty last year and admitted hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans. District Judge Esther Salas criticized the couple for not disclosing all their assets as required under their plea agreement, calling it “the same pattern of obstruction, concealment and manipulation as they showed in the bankruptcy case.” Still, Salas sentenced Teresa Giudice to a sentence below the range sought by the U.S. attorney’s office and staggered her sentence with her husband’s so they wouldn’t be in prison at the same time and unable to care for their four daughters.

According to Leonard Jr., who accompanied her to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury on Monday, when she checked in early at 3 a.m. to avoid media attention, the Bravo star had it all planned out. “Our plan was that we were going to leave her house at midnight to start our journey to Danbury. The Giudices were initially indicted in 2013 on 39 counts of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

As part of the plea agreement, Teresa pleaded guilty to four of the counts against her and Joe to five of the counts against him, including failure to file federal income tax returns. That’s been her singular focus,” he said. “The main reason we left at the time we did, is she didn’t want her kids waking up for school and have a million people in front of their home waiting for Teresa to come out.” After getting a bite to eat at a diner near the prison before checking in and phoning her brother Joe Gorga, the mom of four was ?prepared to enter the facility, Leonard Jr. said. “Whatever emotions she needed to get out, she did it prior,” he told Us of Teresa’s state upon check in. “She had her game face on. Last month, Teresa Giudice sued former attorney James Kridel, whose firm handled the couple’s bankruptcy case, alleging legal malpractice and negligence. “We did what we were supposed to do,” he said. “We can only rely on the facts that were provided to us.

I don’t wish her any ill will, but I would have preferred a ‘thank you’ rather than a lawsuit.” (TM and © Copyright 2015 CBS Radio Inc. and its relevant subsidiaries. Hill was sentenced to just three months in prison after pleading guilty to charges of tax evasion for failing to file tax returns for the years 2005, 2006 and 2007; like Giudice, the judge took the fact that she was a mother into consideration when determining the length of her sentence. The “Queen of Mean,” Leona Helmsley, also served time in Danbury in the 1990s after being convicted on 33 felony counts of fraud, including mail fraud, tax evasion and filing false tax returns.
