Teresa Giudice's Home Confinement Sentence Is Officially Over
The #RHONJ mom's lawyer reveals what's next following the removal of her electronic monitoring bracelet.
Teresa Giudice has officially ended her home confinement sentence, which began following her release from the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn. on December 23. Additionally, her electronic monitoring bracelet has been removed, the Real Housewives of New Jersey mom's lawyer James J. Leonard Jr. confirmed to The Daily Dish on Friday, February 5.
"We are happy to confirm that as of this morning Teresa's home confinement is officially over and she is no longer subject to the constraints of an ankle monitor," Leonard Jr. said in a statement. "She is now completely free from the custodial aspect of her sentence." Her husband, Joe Giudice, is slated to begin his own prison sentence in March.
On February 9, Teresa will release her memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, which will include details about her time spent in prison. She'll appear on Good Morning America and Watch What Happens Live the same day the book his retailers. "I think that if they think they know Teresa, they should read the memoir because they are going to get a completely different [take]," Leonard Jr. previously told The Daily Dish. "They will leave after reading that book with a very, very different opinion of Teresa and her life. And I think they will [gain] a tremendous respect for her after reading the book. I think the book is absolutely phenomenal. She was very honest in the book. She pulled no punches and I think the people are going to come away with the sense that they got to know her a lot better in that book."
