Joe Giudice Charged With Possessing Fraudulent ID
Husband of 'Housewife' allegedly used brother's info on driver's license.
Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes announced in a release that Giuseppe Giudice, husband of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member and Montville resident Teresa Giudice, was arrested at his home in Towaco on Friday for fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license.
“Mr. Giudice was arrested at his home earlier today as the result of an investigation this office did with assistance from the state Motor Vehicle Office,” Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay W. Mc Cann said.
According to the release, Giudice, 40, allegedly obtained a driver’s license from the Paterson branch of the Motor Vehicle Office using his brother’s identifying information in June 2010. Giudice’s license was suspended at the time and still is, according to the statement.
Giudice, who has a suspended license, is charged wrongfully using ID of another person and forgery and, if found guilty, could face more than 10 years in state prison, according to the release.
Mc Cann said that bail is set at $50,000 with no 10 percent option.
The arrest was made by members of the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit with assistance from the Montville Police Department.
In September, Giudice served a 10-day sentence for driving with a suspended license.
