This doesn’t sound good and we’re sure the mom-of-four is very worried.
Teresa’s attorney released this statement at the time of the court date: “We will help Teresa prepare her defense and Joe’s attorneys will do the same for him. In the meantime, they are caring for their kids, getting them ready for school, and doing all the other things families do.”

“The Government appears to have been building a case then Giudice’s for years,” Vikki says. “Which is never a good thing. They have likely followed them on TV and set up a case that is very strong against them.”
Vikki suggests that they strike a plea deal: “Try to strike a plea deal with the government to pay back the money the took improperly in exchange for no jail time.”
