On March 4, Teresa and Joe Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey officially pleaded guilty to multiple counts of fraud. This guilty plea comes almost a year after the reality star couple was first charged with 39 counts of fraud last summer. (The number of charges was raised to 41 in the fall.)

It’s been a long and tumultuous road for the couple, and it’s not over yet. Teresa and Joe’s sentencing is scheduled for July 8, 2014, at which point they will learn how much jail time each will serve.

We’ve been keeping a close watch over this case as everything unfolds. Below are all the details about Tre and Joe’s guilty plea, including how many years they each might spend in jail, and how this could affect their four young daughters.
