During the hearing, the only time time they wept was during the mention of Mr Giudice's father's death, when he found him dead in the family garden. That was what broke them up. Not the sentences that were levied upon the two of them.

Both Teresa and Joe were convicted of wire and bankruptcy fraud. According to the sentencing guidelines, Teresa should have received a sentences of 21 - 27 months. Prosecutors recommended 21 -- saying if the judge wasn't hard it would show being famous counts. Nonetheless the judge went way more lenient.
