Joe was back in Superior Court in Paterson, N.J. on June 2 for a status hearing in a driver’s license case, NorthJersey.com reported. He has to return to court on July 14 for a pretrial hearing on charges that he presented false ID to get a driver’s license while his license was suspended due to a drunken-driving conviction. If a plea agreement can’t be worked out, a date will be set at that hearing for his trial. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on this charge.
Still, it’s non-stop drama for the pair, and you know Bravo is ready to milk the heck out of it. The Guidices’s legal woes will be a focus of Season 6, which premieres Sunday, July 13 — after the federal sentencing but before Joe returns to Paterson for his pretrial hearing on the driver’s license case. The new extended promo for Season 6 ends with the couple’s eldest daughter, Gia, sobbing in her father’s arms, saying she loves him so much. She’s also shown saying she now wants to be a criminal lawyer, and Joe responds “We need them.”
Catch the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 premiere on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET.
