Teresa Giudice was released from prison on Dec. 23 after serving nearly a year behind bars and she looks so relieved, happy and gorgeous in the first pics of her driving away from the Danbury Correctional Facility in Connecticut. She must be so excited to see her daughters just in time for Christmas!
Teresa Giudice, 43, is a free woman! The first pics of Teresa show her being driven away from the prison around 5:30am on Dec. 23 by her attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., and she looks great. Her dark hair is straight in the pics and she is even smiling in one of them!
The two pics obtained by People show Teresa in the backseat of the SUV driven by her attorney and she has on eyeliner, her hair is sleek and she looks camera ready! We know she’s super excited to get home because she’s been in prison for 11 months serving a sentence for bank fraud! (SEE THE FIRST PHOTOS OF HER LEAVING PRISON HERE). The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is reportedly super “excited to finally see her family.” “She can’t believe this day has finally come. She has waited for this day since the moment she set foot in there. She is so happy,” a source said. “The first thing she is going to do when she gets home is hug Joe and her girls so tight. She has missed them all so much while she was in prison. She is going to spend as much time with them as she can.”
But it’s not over yet because she is under house arrest until Feb. 5 — yikes! “During that period, she will be able to work, she will be able to take care of business, medical [things],” James told NorthJersey.com. “She’ll be out and about. And then when that period ends, she will begin a period of supervised release. The sentence that she got was two years of supervised release.”
Teresa and Joe both plead guilty to bank fraud in 2014 and even admitted to submitting phony loan applications. Teresa was sentenced to 15-months in prison but is being released 4 months early. Meanwhile, Joe starts serving his 41-month sentence in March of 2016. Luckily, their Christmas reunion is all being filmed by Bravo so we will get to see it soon enough!
