Teresa and Joe Giudice Indicted on Two More Fraud Charges


Joe Giudice, Teresa Giudice


Teresa's lawyer, Henry Klingeman, says in a statement that his client 'intends to plead 'not guilty' to the allegations in the new indictment.'

Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe were hit with two more counts of fraud in federal court in Newark, N.J. on Monday, November 18. Back in July, the Giudices were slapped with 39-count indictment, making the number of counts 41.

A federal grand jury added new charges of bank fraud and loan application fraud in the court session. Teresa allegedly lied about her employment in a $361,250 mortgage loan that she obtained in 2005, stating that she was a realtor who earned $15,000 while prosecutors said that she was a housewife and was "not employed outside the home at the time." Arraignment for the new charges will take place on November 20.

Teresa's lawyer, Henry Klingeman, said in a statement to the press that the reality star planned to plead not guilty to the new charges. "As she did with respect to the allegations contained in the original indictment, Teresa intends to plead 'not guilty' to the allegations in the new indictment. She looks forward to defending herself at the trial, scheduled for February 24, 2014. Beyond that, we will answer all of the charges in court, not out," the statement read.

At first, the star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" was accused of submitting fraudulent loan applications from 2001 to 2008. She was also accused of concealing her incomes and failing to pay taxes. Joe, meanwhile, was accused of failing to file federal tax returns from 2004 to 2008. As an Italian citizen, Joe whose legal first name is Giuseppe may face deportation if convicted.
