Teresa Giudice: Asking The Judge For House Arrest & Other Special Privileges; Andy Cohen Weighs in On The Case

Posted on Mar 12 2014 - 7:00am by Staff Writer

 

Teresa Giudice

Attorneys for Teresa Giudice, newly convicted felon and “star” of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has made 3 formal request to Judge Esther Salas. Judge Salas is presiding over the Giudice case and will be the deciding factor on whether or not Teresa and her husband Joe serve their sentences in federal prison or at home under house arrest. Sentencing is scheduled on July 8th.

On Tuesday, March 4th, the felonious couple each plead guilty to four counts of fraud including: bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud and failing to pay taxes. Joe Giudice, specifically was accused of not filing tax returns for four years, so he plead guilty to an additional count of  failure to file income taxes.

Teresa is requesting Staggered Sentencing, House Arrest and Permission To Film.

1) Staggered Sentencing
Teresa has requested the judge grant her the privilege to serve a staggered prison term. Which essentially means instead of serving her prison sentence while her husband Joe serves his time in prison, Teresa will serve her sentence after her husband completes his prison term. According to Teresa’s attorney’s, the request for separate prison terms is being requested for the sake of the couple’s four daughters. Serving their time separately would allow for one parent to be home to care for their four daughters. Under federal sentencing guidelines, Teresa is facing a 21 to 27 month prison sentence and Joe is looking at 37 to 46 months. 

2) House Arrest
Teresa is requesting the judge grant her house arrest. House arrest also known as home confinement, home detention, or electronic monitoring is a lenient alternative to prison time. The prisoner is confined to their residence and is electronically monitored 24/7. Teresa would be REQUIRED to wear а transmitter оn her ankle 24 hours а day. Travel is restricted, if allowed at all. Generally, under house arrest no electronic communication or video taping are allowed.

3) Permission To Film
Teresa’s third and final request is for the judge to allow Bravo to continue filming, The Real Housewives of New Jersey from her home IF she is granted house arrest. This request will likely be denied since electronic videotaping by Bravo or Teresa herself violates the terms of “House Arrest.”  Any violation of the terms set forth in the “House Arrest” guidelines would automatically send Teresa to a federal prison to complete the remainder of her term. It would be lights out by 9:30 p.m. and beige jumpsuits for the “star” of the show!

On March 10th, Andy Cohen, host of Watch What Happens Live did an interview with E! Online where he weighed in on Teresa’s legal drama and her future with the network. When asked if she [Teresa] doesn’t go to jail and stays on house arrest, will she be able to shoot the show, Andy (in a pessimistic tone) responds with:

“I’m gonna let her get through the sentencing and then we’ll all talk”

OH SNAP!!! Andy is not confirming Teresa’s return after she’s sentenced. Has Bravo finally seen the light? Sentencing is scheduled for July 8th.

    • Dr Seuss

      Morning Bam. GO AWAY? OH HELL NO she won’t…the woman is a greedy green-eye monster. She values money over all else. That includes shames, her kids, family, etc. She wants to continue collecting that Bravo check for as long as possible.

      • Marsbars09

        Ditto Doc! I just posted a similar comment. Everyone else be damned, Tre is #1!

    • Chloe

      The kids are the true victims. Their lives will forever be scarred by the actions of their selfish parents.

      • Marsbars09

        True dat! Tre will continue to fame whore and make as much money as possible at the expense of her children’s emotional well-being.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Bambino! What a surprise! Who told you about this site?

  • twifan2

    What house is she ‘planning’ to do her house arrest at?

    • Dr Seuss

      Hopefully a redone apartment over Melissa’s garage. Oh my lord…could you imagine?

      • twifan2

        OMG! I’d paid to see that! 😀
        But you know Tre would NEVA be that close to Melissa! Maybe over that pizza place they ‘own’!

            Thanks West – I checked it out – under “About Us” it said Coming Soon. Need to hear from our NJ peeps to see if it was sold and they’re just keeping the name.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi Doc! 🙂

        • Dr Seuss

          Morning Snarkalicious one!

    • Babson_Chick

      Hi twi – do they still have the beach house?? I still feel a giant garage sale coming up!

  • Babson_Chick

    So hope it’s not house arrest – she needs to do the time which would be fine. Keep hoping she’ll learn something – of course her head is filled with lead.

    • Dr Seuss

      Hi Babs. There’s something mentally unbalanced about Teresa I don’t think she can connect the dots between right and wrong. She’s more pissed the government came after her because she’s celebrity.

      • Babson_Chick

        Morning Doc!! Truth!! She just can’t get IT – so am not going to stress over someone that dense. (any story today about Juan P – the douche?)

        • Dr Seuss

          Story coming up! He’s the biggest douche in Bachelor history

          • Babson_Chick

            Can’t wait to weigh in on this!!

  • Marsbars09

    Well goddamn! It sounds like Miss Andy is mad at Tre. I wonder why?

    • twifan2

      Hi Hi Mars! 🙂
      ‘Cause he ain’t going to be making the $$$ he was before! 😀

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Twi! Tre don’t owe Andy nothing.

        • twifan2

          She’s his cash cow, don’t you know. 😀

        • Dr Seuss

          Morning Mars!!

          • Marsbars09

            Hi Doc! How’s it going?

          • Dr Seuss

            Kind of an odd day but I’m not complaining. How goes it, Marsie?

          • Marsbars09

            On my lunch break snarking away.
            Great story you posted by the way. 😉

  • Marsbars09

    I guess delusional Tre thinks she can wheel & deal with the judge on how she should pay for her crimes. I hope the judge throws the book at her lowlife ass.

    • Dr Seuss

      I don’t know anymore, Marsie. I’m starting to lose faith in the judicial system. Who knows if her requests are just a matter of formality and she was already promised those things already. I’m starting to get the sinking feeling, she’s get house arrest. They probably won’t allow the cameras to film her but she’ll be busy writing books and capitalizing more off of the fraud. It’s just not right 🙁

  • Babson_Chick

    BTW, who does Teresa think she is, Oh ya, a star, a celebrity, a best selling author, seller of fine wines, a fab shopper, best ever loving wife and mother – the list goes on and on. Will she add felon and dumb ass to the list??

    • Dr Seuss

      Oh don’t you know, she was forced to plead guilty. She’s really innocent so the “convict” title doesn’t apply. The government was out to get her.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes. the Feds were just jealous of her.

        • Dr Seuss

          Naturally. Isn’t everybody?

          • twifan2

            hhhmmmm, not me!

      • Babson_Chick

        LOL!! Of course she’d see it that way.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        It could happen to ANYBODY!!!!!!!!!!

        • Chloe

          Logic according to Tre. How has she functioned in society with such limited faculties?

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Babs! Great one!

      • Babson_Chick

        Thanks Mars – am sure I left out a few.

  • Dr Seuss

    AATT added a poll on the homepage. “Will Tre be given prison time or house arrest” I’m choosing prison time but I am losing faith and fast. I have the sinking feeling the forehead-less one might just be granted house arrest and I’m furious.

    • twifan2

      Bite your tongue, Doc! :/

      • Dr Seuss

        I’m serious Twi. I’m not psychic but something is telling me, the feds already worked out this deal with her and she’ll get house arrest. The feds had an air tight case with tons of evidence and went from 41 counts of fraud to 4??? That makes no sense.

        • SAMRA1116

          If she get probation —their should be a public uproar
          The judge in all their cases is suspect
          They been allowed too much free time n spending more n not paying those poor small businesses. These were some brass criminals, with no remorse. SMDH

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I agree. Whatever the outcome, a lot of us will not like it!!

        • RonnieIsBack

          I feel the same way..it like when all those charges were dropping like hotcakes for R. Kelly….somebody snitched…

      • Dr Seuss

        Love this pic!!!! Should be their x-mas card.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Now THIS is funny!!!!! as in HAHA…llok at Juicy the elf…lolololol

    • Babson_Chick

      I choose prison time but also have a feeling they might give her a break. Of course the judge could be pissed by now.

      • Dr Seuss

        That judge is new and is basically a puppet. She’ll do whatever the prosecutors tell her to do. I don’t know for certain Babs but I think she’ll get another break. When will the breaks stop for this liar & thief?

        • Babson_Chick

          Yes – the average person would not get special handling and this pisses me off. Their lawyers must be smart – waiting for the tough judges to go on vacation.

          • Dr Seuss

            LOL!! Exactly Babs. Let me know what ya think of the bachelor thread.

          • Babson_Chick

            Oh I joined in over there. Good thread – every writer/blogger is all over this story.

          • Dr Seuss

            Yeah, I figured so. Should have jumped on it sooner.

      • Dr Seuss
        • noarguingwithstupid

          Hate that show–sorry, Doc!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’ve never seen it NAWS, but that didn’t stop me from weighing in.

          • Dr Seuss

            check your email.

          • WestCoastFeed

            read and replied.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I think the fix is in. She will do house arrest and will not be able to be filmed, so Bravo will of course make special accomodations for her, as they always do!

        • Babson_Chick

          Am thinking that not being able to be filmed will seem like prison to her. She can’t live without her fans either – maybe a lawn meet and greet.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I chose prison also…

  • Chloe

    Serve the time and get deported. You both give all Law abiding Immigrants a bad rap. I always saw they were both trash/scum and Teresa the most fake and ugly Italian woman on the planet land pleading guilty just proved it. Only good thing is that your brat daughters will understand the rule of entitlement and that you can’t break the law to serve your own GREED! I hope you lose all your assets.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, Chloe. Unfortunately, Teresa is an American citizen and can’t be deported. Do you think she will follow Joe to Italy when the INS boots him?

      • Chloe

        @WestCoastFeed:disqus I did not realize she was born here. She butchers the English language. I think they may divorce before he gets out of prison seeing as how she’s obsessed with sex. I don’t think she’ll wait for him.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I understand that she butcher Italian just as much as English. But, if she divorces him, then Caroline’s prediction might come true. The very thought of that would curdle Tre’s blood.

          • Chloe

            Caroline foretold this prophecy in her crystal ball. Do you think Tre would stay married to the troll to spite Caroline?

          • WestCoastFeed

            No, Tre will always look out for herself, Number One, but it will kill her that Caroline was right.

          • Chloe

            I think as well. She’s all about Tre. Selfish.

          • Marsbars09

            No. As soon as the time is right, Tre’s divorcing Joe’s primate ass.

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Chloe! ITA. I give their marriage 5 more years.

          • Dr Seuss

            Yup!!! If that….Tre probably got a man on the side now( for all we know)

  • Marsbars09

    You know, if I were Bravo or the judge I would not allow Tre’s crooked ass to be filmed if she’s sentenced to house arrest. She’s a f*cking felon for Christ’s sakes! Bravo should not be promoting criminals on national TV. What kind of message is that sending to society? If you are a convicted felon you can profit off of it?

    • WestCoastFeed

      I agree Mars. but then I am angry with Bravo for filming her when she was under indictment.

      • Marsbars09

        Yeah, that’s bad too. Bravo really should have fired them after season 5.

    • Dr Seuss

      Filming while on house arrest is a violation of the house arrest guideline. If the judge allows it, I will know with 100% certainty the “fix” is in.

      • Marsbars09

        Thanks for mentioning that. I had no idea.

        • Dr Seuss

          ur welcome!

  • Marsbars09

    Doc, thank you for referring to the Giudices’ as convicted felons & felonious. The world needs to know what con artist scum they are.

    • Dr Seuss

      Hahahaha! I got the word from the comments here. Was it you that posted the word? If so, THANK U!!!!! I love it.

      • Marsbars09

      • cutie pie

        Great Blog Doc..thank you…

        • Dr Seuss

          You’re such a doll, thanks Cutie Pie! Means a lot.

  • Marsbars09

    Now that I realize what kind of mother Tre really is, I wonder how she was treated growing up. Were her folks really as wonderful and loving as she always proclaims? You would think all of the love & concern her parents showed her she would emote to her children.
    There’s something “off” or missing about the way she was supposedly raised in relation to what she’s putting her poor kids through.
    Does anybody understand what I’m getting at?

    • WestCoastFeed

      I’ve thought about that, too. Mars. Were her parents so stern and strict and rigid with her, that she decided to never be like that with her own children? Would that explain why she over-indulges her girls and never seems to discipline them?

      • Marsbars09

        Great point WCF! But something tells me the senior Gorgas’ let their kids get away with a lot, so I don’t think they were all that strict.
        And remember during the Season 1 reunion when the question was raised if she was worried she was spoiling her daughters? She responded her father gave her EVERYTHING she wanted, and look how she turned out?
        Yes! Tre’s circumstances are a reflection of her upbringing.

        • WestCoastFeed

          You’re right, I had forgotten about that.

        • Dr Seuss

          BINGO! I was thinking of that exact same scene. She was spoiled rotten and that’s the WORSE thing a parent could do to a child. It creates self-entitled monsters in society. Hence Teresa.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        It is easy to say yes and difficult to say no to children. Tre will go the easy way, always!!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I think it is hilarious that she is asking for special treatment!! I guess she feels like she is just so much better than all of the other female felons!!!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      I wish the judge had a longer history on the bench so we could better judge how she will go on this. Is there a website somewhere that summarizes judges histories?

  • WestCoastFeed

    UK viewers have been watching Season 4 today and almost all the tweets have been anti-Tre. I think they must have seen the episode with Rosie talking to the Wakile kids, and that big argument Tre and Melissa had at the Summer Solstice party. The UK fans seem to be turning against Tre at lot faster than the US fans.

    • Dr Seuss

      Was Tre popular with the UK fans?

      • WestCoastFeed

        More so than I would have expected.

        • Dr Seuss

          That’s interesting because their is a certain nuance to American television much less the Jerzeey crew. I’m surprise it translates. Because I don’t get British programming. No offense to anyone.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Melissa just tweeted a photo of herself in a bikini, titled, “Heyyy Boca.” The Wakiles also tweeted a beach pic today. And this morning a Florida fan said she just booked a private room for RHONJ taping. Is Boca the big trip this year for Season 6?

    • Dr Seuss

      Must be hard for Tre to attend these events now in light of what she’s facing. LOL!!

  • italiano bambino

    I can’t wait to see her without make up n extension can you imagine the apestrocity? ??????

    • Dr Seuss

      Oh the hororrrrr!!! Friday the 13th….Nightmare on Elm Street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • italiano bambino

        You meant to say APE street???? LMFAO! !

        • Dr Seuss

          Apesolutely!!!!!!

    • Marsbars09

      No offense, but Tre’s probably going to look more like her mother without the the botox, fillers, professional make-up, and weave.

      • italiano bambino

        Omg mars lol was up 😉 I saw hire her for yhe next planet of the apes as a extra

  • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

    I want to appeal to the Federal judicial system to put T. Giudice in prison as soon as they possible can. No house arrest at all.
    Straight to Prison, No passing Go, No collecting $200, Just straight to Prison!!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Me, too, TTaA. I think she’ll get some prison time, maybe 6 to 9 months, then house arrest.

      • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

        Hi Mars and West,
        Y’all may be correct. . .but. . .the gall of this, I’m going to try to be nice here, bint to go to these lengths to “beg” by the way of the media to attempt to “shame” the court system to give her house arrest. Really!!
        The degree of spin she puts on absolutely everything, to me is just so emphatically ludicrous.
        Out of spite, I would hope that the Fed’s put her ass in prison!

        • WestCoastFeed

          I’m over the outrage that I felt when the indictments first were announced, but I’m still indignant. So, yes, I still want to see her in handcuffs and shackles..

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I agree and I also want the IRS to start taking and taking and taking!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Hi, NAWS, me too. I’m disappointed by learning that they have to wait until July 8th. too.

      • Bonita Gee

        Yep 6 to 9 months – that’s it. There’s no way she’ll do the entire 27 months. Wow the perks of being RICH and FAMOUS. Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!

        • WestCoastFeed

          Hi, Bonita Gee. But she is not rich. When the IRS moves in, all that gaudy stuff will be gone. Remember how she got it.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Twits! I second you on that.

    • Dr Seuss

      Preach!!

    I am so tired of Teresa wanting to be catered too. Bravo should have immediately FIRED her when she pled guilty. She thinks she is above the law and it makes me FURIOUS. She and Joe have no remorse at all and they never will

      Hi, murlut. I thought Bravo should have fired them back when it came out that they had fired on their bankruptcy petition. I think that only jail time will bring them to remorse.

    Yep 6 to 9 months – that’s it. There’s no way she’ll do the entire 27 months. Wow the perks of being RICH and FAMOUS. Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!! But Ya’ll NEED to stop “going in” on Teresa about her hair line and her looks. I always thought she was pretty…… Ya’ll REALLY need to stop. If I could surgically have my hairline moved down to the middle of my forehead I would, SERIOUSLY Heee heee!! I think it’s cute.

      IF . . .you thinks it’s cute to commit so many different degrees of fraud on so many different levels of the public as well as business entitities. . .I’d say you might need to get some serious therapy!
      There’s zero cute about that… or is her hairline all that you focus on?

      • Bonita Gee

        Of course its the hairline…………….. Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh! come on now – she is a reality tv show STAR… That’s what this is all about. Other than that she and Joe WOULD NEVER be getting such a light sentence. ….. Wake up and smell the coffee!! You ”NEED SOME SERIOUS THERAPY” if you CAN’T realize the OBVIOUS.. Haaaaa!!!

    Great piece sweetie. All of the requests piss me off. Just because ur on tv, flipping tables, doesnt mean u get special advantages when a crime was committed. Using the kids for pity really is gross. I think the jusge will laugh at all if these requests. House arrest is not an alternative to ur prison sentence. Whats up with the celebrities that commit crimes and exoect the rest of us to get them out of it. If u can do the crime, u can do the time. Her lawyer shocks me to even ask for filming if house arrest is given. It directly violates the terms of house arrest. Grow a pair, and just accept ur punishment. Doc u did great. Love it

      Thanks GF! Teresa on a whole pisses me off BIG time. I really hope your right and the judge laughs and dismisses all her request. But I have been having a daunting feeling this is not the case. I think this shit is all worked out behind the scenes already and she will get house arrest, Whomever they snitched on must have be some big fish for the government to be giving these thug midgets all these breaks.

      I don’t believe the staggered sentencing request is at all unreasonable, and as for the rest, if it were your situation you’d certainly ask for more than you thought you could get in the hopes that what you actually wanted would seem like more of a compromise.

    well….isn’t this INTERESTING?!?!

    • Dr Seuss

      Hey GF!! Glad to see you here. Finally, you found us.

    Also, I don’t think she can actually film because she would be profiting from her crimes, which our CJ system does not allow.
