Teresa and Joe Giudice are a free couple … at least for right now.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple was in a Newark, N.J. courtroom this morning to address a 39-count indictment on federal fraud charges, and TMZ is now reporting that the hearing is over and the pair has surrendered to the federal government.

Both Teresa and Joe are currently free on $500k bond (each) but they must remain in either New York or New Jersey, and have been forced to turn over their passports.

Juicy Joe, who is apparently not an American citizen, is subject to random drug testing, but his wife is not.

An arraignment is scheduled for August 14, 2013, in a New Jersey Federal Court, at which point both Teresa and Joe will be expected to enter their pleas. Teresa’s lawyer, Henry Klingeman, stated yesterday that the Real Housewives star intends to plead not guilty to the charges, but we don’t yet know what her husband intends to do.
