Joe Giudice has only been in prison for a few days, and reports are already coming out that he is in trouble. He recently surrendered himself for a 41-month sentence. Radar Online shared that a prisoner is speaking out and saying that Joe showed up to jail intoxicated, but Joe’s lawyer doesn’t know anything about it if this is true. Giudice went to jail on March 23.
A source is revealing that Joe Giudice arrived to Fort Dix Correctional Institution “drunk and belligerent.” Joe has admitted in the past to having a problem with alcohol. Now, he will end up a changed man after having to stay away from it the entire time he is in jail. Before Joe headed to prison, he allegedly drank with Teresa at home. Joe knew he would not be allowed a drink for a long time, so this could have had something to do with it.
The source went on to say that Joe was a total mess when he got to jail. Of course, they didn’t have any cameras around to catch how Joe was doing. The source claims that they figured it out right away and that “They couldn’t believe he made a mockery of the court by immediately breaking the rules.” On top of that, the source said that they went as far as to put Joe in maximum security instead of general camp. This would be a pretty big difference for Joe starting out. When Teresa was in jail, she made it sound like she had it pretty easy. If Joe is in maximum security, this may not be the case for him.
The source went on to say that Joe and his handlers tried to clear up the situation by a stop at Starbucks on the way to jail, but it just didn’t work out. Insiders even shared that this could cause Joe to get deported, and maybe even before he is done with his time in jail. Joe’s lawyer knows nothing about any of it though. Joe’s attorney, Miles Feinstein, shared his thoughts.
“If it’s true, it shocks me. If it’s caused a maximum security designation, then it’s going to be quite different for him than being in a lower tiered level of the federal prison system.”
The thing is this story is totally different from one Us Magazine shared a few days ago. They said that Joe actually got five months taken off of his prison sentence already. Joe is serving time for conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud. Giudice was sentenced to 41 months behind bars, but if you check out his release date, it has now been moved up five months sooner. Joe should be getting out of jail March 14, 2019. That is a pretty long time to be away from his wife and girls. Teresa did give fans an update recently on how Joe is doing. Here is what she had to say.
“It has been a difficult week for us, but we’re making it through, thank God. Joe’s doing as well as expected. Of course we spoke to him. And I just wanted to say thank you again from my heart for being there, and for all your beautiful tweets.”
