Prosecutors yesterday indicted Joe and Teresa Giudice with two additional charges that could add some serious prison time to the time they are already facing. The couple are accused of loan fraud and bank fraud because Teresa claimed on loan documents she was making $15,000 a month as a realtor when in reality she had no income and no job. The original 39 count indictment has now increased to 41 counts.
It is interesting because Teresa is already having her people send out e-mails and tips which say that Joe filled out the forms and just put them in front of Teresa to sign and she had no clue or understanding what she was signing and is an innocent victim. Apparently the friends have no problems throwing Joe under a bus.
The new charges could potentially add another few decades to the few decades of prison time they already face and the couple is due in court tomorrow for their arraignment. Joe still has his other trial scheduled in state court pertaining to his fake drivers license. The trial on the federal charges is set for the end of February.
