LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Joe Giudice prison term is being sought by a local DA after Joe Giudice also recently served jail time. Is Joe Giudice facing a prison time, when is Joe Giudice’s trial date, and what is Giudice being prosecuted for?
The Joe Giudice prison threat looms as the RHONJ 2013 season premieres tonight. But Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay McCann wants Joe in prison, not on TV. In August 2012, Miles Feinstein told Superior Court Judge Greta Gooden Brown that his client was ready to go to trial. Joe Giudice agreed, appearing in court wearing blue jeans at the time.
But that trial didn’t happen in 2012. Rather he is now heading to a July 15, 2013 trial date. “We are happy that a trial date has been set and we look forward to Joe being exonerated,” Miles said in a recent news statement.
For two years, the state has offered Joe a reduced sentence, but requiring him to spend time in state prison. Now if found guilty, he could face ten years in prison. He has been offered four years, which he has rejected.
“Today [April 1] the state offered him NJ State Prison, and we rejected that offer,” his attorney Miles Feinstein said in a recent statement to in Touch. “Instead, we set a trial scheduling hearing for May 28, since we’re rejecting the new plea offer.”
Joe has previously briefly served time in jail after he was arrested for driving with a suspended license. Giudice’s current criminal problems, however, stem from his application to the local DMV. Giudice lost his license during a DUI conviction. After he was arrested for allegedly attempting to used fake information at a local DMV for a driver’s license.
Giudice allegedly took taking his brother’s Pietro Giudice’s marriage and birth certificate to allegedly get a fraudulent driver’s license at the Paterson, N.J..
