According to Us Weekly, Teresa Giudice will be going to prison after all. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sentenced to 15 months, per NorthJersey.com. She received the ruling from Judge Esther Salas on Thursday, Oct. 2, just a few hours after her husband Joe received his. Us Weekly is on the scene and has details. During the hearing, Teresa's attorney requested "downward departure," which, according toNorthJersey.com, would have lowered her sentencing range "to allow probation and possibly home confinement." Judge Salas rejected that request. An attorney for the prosecution asked that Teresa serve at least 21 months in prison, arguing that a lighter sentence would send the message that you can lie to the court and commit bank fraud if you're famous. Like her husband, Teresa addressed the court prior to sentencing, at one point breaking down in tears. "Thank you for letting me address the court today. I wrote this last night because I get nervous when I speak," she began. "I speak as a wife, a mother, and a daughter. Today I am blessed but I am also humbled. I hear you and what you are saying, and it is time for me to wake up." She went on to speak about her four daughters -- Gia, 13, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 4 -- saying, "My daughters are my life. I don't care about the TV show, or materialistic things. My daughters are all that I care about, and I feel so bad that my 13-year-old has any idea what is going on with all of this. I am more sorry than anyone will know. The silver lining is that I can learn and show my daughters. I know everything happens for a reason, and I hope I can find that reason." As previously reported, Joe was sentenced earlier on Thursday to 41 months in prison, with a restitution payment of $414,588. He and his wife pleaded guilty back in March toseveral counts of bank and mail fraud, months after they were indicted on a total of 41 counts in July 2013.
