Real Housewives of New Jersey Stars Plead Guilty to Fraud, Will They Go to Jail? [POLL]

For more than a year, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has professed that she and her husband Joe are completely innocent of fraud charges that had been leveled against them.  She said she looked forward to her day in court where she was convinced she and Joe would be acquitted.  But today, the couple plead guilty to several of those charges, leaving them vulnerable to jail time and possible (in Joe’s case) deportation.

The Bravo reality TV stars appeared in a New Jersey federal court on today to make their guilty plea.

The couple was indicted on multiple counts of fraud last summer, including conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

Teresa Giudice reportedly plead guilty to four charges. She is potentially facing two years in prison, but the final decision will be made by the judge during the sentencing phase of the trial.

The plea deal will not keep Joe from being deported.  After conviction, U.S. immigration officials get to decide if they want to proceed with sending him back to Italy.

The Giudices’s are parents to four daughter, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana.
