Joe Giudice Gets Months Off Sentence, Rules Of Prison, And Teresa Giudice’s Lack Of Visitation

Joe Giudice just went to jail last week, and already he has months taken off his prison sentence and if things work out, he could be coming home early, Radar Online reported. Teresa and their four daughters, Gia 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania 10, and Adriana, 6, must be elated to hear the news that Joe will not be gone for the full 41 months.

Joe Giudice had five months eliminated from his sentence, which means he will be released on March 14, 2019, instead of August, 2019. The five-month reduction is figuring in the 54 days per year for “good time,” or good behavior. Unfortunately, if Joe Giudice messes up, his “good time” days can easily be eliminated. While an early release may be comforting to Joe, he has other more pressing problems following his release. Because he is not a citizen of the United States, he could be deported to his native land, Italy.

Joe Giudice is busy settling down to his new life and learning what is expected of him during his stay at Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institution. He has the handbook from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and there are many rules to follow. A representative for the Federal Bureau of Prisons told ABC News that Joe’s celebrity status would have no bearing on his treatment at the prison.

“It is the mission of the Federal Bureau of Prisons to protect society by confining offenders in the controlled environments of prisons and community-based facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and that provide work and other self-improvement opportunities to assist offenders in becoming law-abiding citizens.”

The representative said the prison Joe Giudice was sent to is made up of 12-man and two man living quarters, but he did not share which one Joe was living at. Inmates wake up at 6 a.m. for breakfast, lunch is served at 11 a.m., and dinner is served at 4 p.m. However, on the weekends and holidays, the routine changes a bit, as they have coffee hour beginning at 6:30 a.m., with lunch following at 10 a.m.

“The Food Service Department provides nutritious and appealing meals, served in adequate quantity, in accordance with the national menu. All meals served are intended to meet the basic needs and desires of the general population.”

What kind of meals will Joe Giudice be eating while at the Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institute? Lunch often includes baked fish, a vegetable like green peas and macaroni salad. For dinner, they may have chicken-fried rice, bread, and steamed broccoli. For those inmates with money, snacks are available like chips, cookies, granola bars, and macaroni and cheese.

Other rules in the handbook that Joe Giudice will have to abide by include what inmates have to wear. They have special uniforms to wear, and each person has a specific job at the prison. Inmates can wear athletic clothing when they are not working. However, shirts are a top priority, unless the person is in bed.

According to the handbook, “Whatever clothing is worn, must be tucked in. You are not permitted to mix and match uniform and athletic or recreational clothing, (For example; the uniform shirt cannot be worn with recreational clothing or vice versa). The only exception is that athletic footwear is allowed with the uniform during evenings and weekends when inmates are not assigned to work or visiting.”

Even though Jo Giudice has been gone for about a week, his wife, Teresa Giudice, has not been permitted to visit her husband yet, In Touch reported. She apparently filled out the necessary paperwork and submitted them properly to be put on his visitor list. Right now, she is waiting for the papers to make it through.

A source told In Touch, “Teresa hasn’t been approved yet to visit Joe. She would have been at the prison the next day to see Joe if she had been placed on his visitor list. All of the paperwork has been submitted to the prison on Teresa’s behalf. She is just waiting to get the approval and understands that there is a process. As soon as Teresa gets word she can go, she will be there.”

The period that this takes is uncertain, according to the source. “This could happen in the next few days or it might take another two weeks.”

What do you think about Joe Giudice immediately receiving five months off his sentence and what do you think his job will be at the prison? Do you think Joe Giudice will be deported or will he get out of it and become a legal U.S. citizen?
