Real Housewives of New Jersey

How Much Time Could Teresa Giudice Actually Serve in Prison?

Ever since the news broke that Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, were charged with 39 counts of financial fraud, we've been hearing the same scary number over and over: 50 years in prison. But how realistic is that number?

Former federal prosecutor John J. Carney recently spoke with Us Weekly, where he gave his opinion on how much time the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is likely looking at.

"... Based on similar cases, 18 to 36 months of prison time is more probable than 50 years," he told the media outlet.

That's still a good chunk of time, especially when there are four young girls involved. Luckily, Tre's sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, is ready to step up if necessary. We're sure Teresa is thrilled at the thought.

Do you think Teresa is going to end up in jail? Sound off below!
