Teresa Giudice Home Raided — The Truth Revealed
Luckily for Teresa and her entire family, Us Weekly reports that the rumors surrounding thier home invasion by Federal Agents is just that — a rumor!
Matt Reilly, a spokesperson from the U.S. Attorney’s office, told the site that, “We weren’t involved in anything over there,” regarding the allegations that agents spent hours at Teresa’s home.
Matt continued to say that no part of the government was involved in raiding Teresa’s home.”We would be enforcing any forfeiture action, so if anything like that needed to be done, we would arrange for it to happen,” he revealed. “But that hasn’t happened.”
It sounds like the Giudice’s are doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing, paying their restitution fees. “We have an asset forfeiture unit here,” Matt said. “I haven’t talked to them, but typically they would work out [debt repayment] with the defendants. I haven’t heard that there’s any problem with that.”
Miles Feinstein — Joe Giudice‘s attorney also denies that there was any sort of raid at the house. “I checked with Joe and he said there was no FBI raid. I also checked with the government and they said it didn’t happen.”
“I’ve been a criminal lawyer for a long time, and I’ve never heard of the government coming into a home with four children right before Christmas and seizing their gifts,” Miles adds. “If it did happen, I would think it was an absolutely cruel and merciless act by the U.S. government. It’s just not true.”
