Devastating news for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her family after a judge rules husband Joe Giudice must be deported back to Italy after he completes his prison sentence.
The judge issued the ruling in immigration court on Wednesday morning.
“Based upon the law, I find you deportable and ineligible for any kind of relief,” the judge announced, according to RadarOnline. “Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”
Giudice is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence after being found guilty of wire, mail and bankruptcy fraud. He has thirty days to appeal the ruling.
According to E!News, Joe – who shares four daughters with Teresa – is expected to be released early in March 2019 where he will directly be transferred to ICE custody.
People are reporting Teresa Giudice was not in court for the ruling.
