Paul Zimmerman/Getty Images for Mount Airy Casino Resort(YORK COUNTY, PA) — Joe Giudice, the husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, has been ordered deported to Italy following his prison sentence for fraud.
Officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to ABC News that a judge ruled on the deportation in immigration court Wednesday morning. Joe has 30 days to appeal the decision.
Giudice is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence at the Allenwood Federal Correctional Institute in Pennsylvania for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud and is scheduled to be released next year. His wife, Teresa, served just over 11 months in jail for the same crimes and was released in 2015. The couple have four daughters: 17-year-old Gia, 14-year-old Gabriella, 12-year-old Milania and nine-year-old Audriana.
Back in January, Teresa implied she’d move to Italy to be with her husband should he be deported.
“I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live,” Giudice said at the RHONJ reunion on Bravo. “I wouldn’t mind, you know, I’m just saying. Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s going to happen. I will embrace it the best I can.”
