Judge Says ‘No’ To Real Housewife Prison Request

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A federal judge won’t recommend that prison officials allow “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice  to serve most of her federal prison sentence in a halfway house.

A lawyer for Giudice had filed a letter with a judge in Newark this week, asking for a recommendation that she serve 12 months in a halfway house. Prosecutors opposed the request, and U.S. District Judge Esther Salas announced Wednesday that she would not make the recommendation.

Salas also announced that she was told Giudice will be assigned to a prison camp facility in Danbury, Connecticut, and must report there on Jan. 5.

Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy. Her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months.
