Joe Giudice Might Be Going To Prison

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice is looking at a serious bid in the slammer if he's convicted for his latest charges.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has a gorilla on her back that she just can't seem to handle: Her husband, Joe Giudice. The property developer is back in trouble with the law.

Joe Giudice arrested for identity theft

Joe, 40, was indicted on two felony counts of identity theft, according to People. A grand jury in Passaic County, New Jersey handed down that indictment that includes a "charge includes one count of wrongfully using identifying information of another, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, and one count of impersonation, which can carry up to 18 months in prison," according to the magazine.

Whoa, sounds serious.

Joe allegedly used his brother's birth certificate and marriage license to obtain a driver's license at a New Jersey DMV. Why? His own license was suspended in January 2010 for driving while intoxicated. The couple has also fought financial problems that led them to file bankruptcy and sell off possessions, only to later pull the claim.

Of course, Joe claims the whole thing was just a misunderstanding and that authorities were trying to pin something on him because of their reality star status.

"They didn't even catch me driving," he told People of his DUI. "They came to my house and said you're driving with your brother's license and then they got me with some kind of stupid charge."

Teresa hasn't spoken out about the indictment yet. We're sure she'll make excuses for Joe, just like she did when he was spotted getting cozy with a mystery woman.

"It's totally false," Teresa told PopEater of the cheating accusations. "Trust me, Joe gets enough love IN our marriage, he doesn't need to look anywhere else."

Teresa, we like you — don't let a shady husband keep bringing you down.

Wow. Why the hate? Yes, they are frauds, but it's not like they are getting away with it. These charges, and maximum potential penalty are going to ruin their lives, and the lives of their children and parents. You are watching Karma in action. They'll pay dearly for what they've done. You should direct your anger at the Wall Street thieves WHO GOT AWAY WITH IT and got a BAILOUT on top of escaping charges. I don't see how attacking her looks or speculating on the integrity (or lack thereof) has anything to do with it. They committed crimes, and the justice system is working. Trust me...they won't escape severe punishment. Just confused at your persona; rage for this woman when she will pay with the loss of her children. no worse punishment than that exists. Just my opinion....

Joe is so stupid he does not understand the charges. It is not that he was driving with a fraudulent ID, but that he attained a driver's license using false identification. They are both idiots and deserve each other. I do not know why some people really like her, but to me they are both lying losers who have "mob" mentality. Too bad she couldn't be charged as well. She is so selfish and Teresa, you are not that good looking, so quit modeling on the show. It makes me sick. You and hubby Joe enjoy your loving IN the marriage, but he did cheat on you, you stupid, ignorant girl.
