After appearing in a New Jersey federal court Tuesday morning, reality TV stars Teresa and Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice were each released on $500,000 unsecured appearance bonds.
Neither Teresa nor Joe entered pleas; and an arraignment was set for August 14. Teresa Giudice’s lawyer, Henry Klingeman, said yesterday that she would plead “not guilty.”
In a packed courtroom, the couple stared straight ahead as they heard major charges read aloud from the 39-count indictment. The charges include conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud. NOTE: Read the indictment at Justice.gov.
The reality stars must turn over their passports and stay in New York and New Jersey, according to the terms of the bail.
Joe Giudice, who is not a U.S. citizen, is subject to drug testing, reports TMZ. Teresa Giudice will not be subjected to drug tests.
