You may or may not be familiar with The Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you are, you know the life of Teresa Giudice a little too well. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, you have probably heard the real drama surrounding the life of Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe.

According to ABC News, she was sentenced to a fifteen–month prison sentence and $414,000 in restitution after being charged with several counts of loan and bankruptcy fraud. Her husband, an Italian, was sentenced to three and a half years in prison after not filing tax returns for several years.

Since the trial ended, Teresa has started her jail sentence. Rumors are currently circulating about the idea of her writing a tell-all book upon her release. All people who have been charged with these severe crimes worry about how their reputation and their future will be affected; as for the Giudice family, the future is still uncertain.

For instance, Joe Giudice is an Italian immigrant and not a U.S. citizen. This poses some interesting questions about what will happen to him after he serves his time. Will he be deported? According to North Jersey News, he came to the United States when he was one year old, but he never became a student. The article also states that, if the charges are determined to be aggravated felonies, he would be deported, in which case he would not be able to return.

This case is applicable to many people in the Colorado area. While you may not have the national attention that the Giudice family has, a fraud charge could still be devastating. Being charged with a crime could potentially ruin your reputation; it’s crucial that you fight these charges.

Furthermore, if you are not a U.S. citizen, these charges can also be life-ruining. You may be at risk of being deported, much like Joe Giudice. According to the U.S. Immigration Visa Center, there are many grounds for deportation, including criminal grounds, such as fraud. At the Law Office of Andres R.
