Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and husband Joe plead guilty to multiple fraud charges in Federal Court today.
Their sentencing is scheduled for July 8. Joe faces potential jail time of up to 46 months, while Teresa faces a maximum of 27 months behind bars.
The Giudices have faced a series of legal woes since they were charged with 39 counts—including bank fraud, wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud—in July 2013. At the time they were indicted, they plead not guilty.
In November, the 41-year-old opened up to In Touch about staying after she and her husband were charged with two additional counts.
“Look—every family has problems. Nobody’s perfect,” Teresa told the mag. “I have to be strong for my kids.”
