Joe Giudice To Be Deported To Italy After Completing Jail Time

In a little under a year from now, Joe Giudice will be returning to Italy.

The latest report comes from RadarOnline, confirming that a judge ruled on the order in immigration court Wednesday morning.

Presiding Judge John Ellington told the courtroom  — where wife Teresa Giudice was reportedly absent from — saying:

“Based upon the law, I find you deportable and ineligible for any kind of relief. Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is currently serving a 41-month sentence in federal prison on bankruptcy fraud charges. Back in June, we reported that there was a chance for the reality star to remain stateside after applying for “a cancellation of removal” and filing a motion to terminate the charges in late May. At the time, both motions were “pending.”

The 46-year-old felon, who appeared at the hearing from his Allenwood, Penn. prison via teleconference, understandably did not take the news well:

“I don’t understand how I can be deported on this case. If you will, I’ll tell you my side. I shouldn’t even be here right now. I have to go back and tell my kids this, and they’ve been waiting to hear from me.”

The online publication reports that the judge explained that Giudice has a chance to file another appeal by November 9.

So it’s highly likely that the legal back-and-forth will continue through 2019.
