Joe Started His Jail Sentence

Article from The NY Post.

The husband of "Real Housewife" Teresa Giudice today began serving his 10-day jail sentence stemming from a drunk driving conviction, authorities said.

Joe Giudice, 40, the husband of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star, was sentenced by a judge last week and also fined $1,000.

Giudice also had his license suspended for seven months and ordered to pay a $300 fine, according to court papers.
Giudice did not speak to reporters as he walked into the Morris County Correctional Facility.

Last month, Giudice appeared before a judge to appeal the DWI sentence he received in March. The drunk driving conviction was Giudice's first-ever offense and at the time the judge imposed maximum penalties of a one-year loss of his driver's license, a $500 fine and 48 hours at the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center.

The judge had also ordered Giudice to serve either 30 days community service or 30 days in jail.

At last month's hearing, another judge reduced the sentence -- cutting out the 30 days community service or jail time altogether. The judge also reduced the license suspension from a year to seven months, slashed the fine to $300 and told Giudice to complete 12 hours at the resource center.

Giudice was charged with driving under the influence in January after crashing his car into a telephone pole in Montville Township, NJ.
