After being sentenced to 15 months in prison, Teresa Giudice blamed her lawyers for not fighting hard enough — but could her husband, Joe Giudice, really be the one to blame? A recent discovery is revealing that Joe could have saved his wife from going to jail but he chose not to!
Teresa Giudice is heading to jail for 15 months and her husband, Joe Giudice, claimed that he did everything he could to exonerate his wife — but was he lying? Apparently, Joe turned down an offer right after getting charged that could have kept his wife out of prison! Find out why he turned it down!
Joe Giudice: Teresa Guidice — He Could Have Saved Her From Jail Time
“Shortly after they were charged, Joe had the chance to accept a deal admitting his sole guilt in the case,” a source told OK! magazine. They explained that the agreement would have required Joe to serve the original amount of time on the table but Teresa would have walked away without a sentence!
“He didn’t take it because he is a coward,” the source continued. “He thought that by dragging it out and bringing Teresa into things, his sentence would be less harsh.”
During their interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Teresa said “I thought my lawyers were going to fight for me. I mean, that’s what lawyers do.”
It looks like her husband could have been the one fighting for her long before the actual trial — she could have avoided spending over a year in prison!
She also told Andy, “You know what, I don’t think he meant to hurt me in any way. I think it’s a learning lesson for the both of us.”
Maybe he didn’t mean to hurt her, but he sure didn’t do everything in his power to save her, according to recent reports.
Teresa’s crisis public relations manager, Wendy Feldman, thinks it’s a great idea for Teresa to document her time in jail — “She will make money off of a tell-all book because people will want to know her prison secrets.”
