Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe Giudice was indicted on Tuesday by a New Jersey grand jury, charged with fraudulently obtaining a driver’s license in his brother’s name.
Joe, 40, was charged by a Passaic County grand jury with one count of impersonation and one count of wrongfully using identifying information of another. When his driver’s license was suspended (for DUI), authorities say Giudice used his brother Pietro’s marriage and birth certificates to obtain a driver’s license with Joe’s picture and Pietro’s name, DOB and other info at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
Prosecutors said the scheme came to light when Pietro Giudice was pulled over in March on a traffic stop, and Joe’s picture came up in the computer.
If convicted on both counts, Joe could face more than 11 years in prison.
