If the judge rules in the Joe’s favor, he will be able to return to his home to await the rest of his deportation case. If not Joe, will have to wait out his case in the detention center that he is currently in and will have no other recourse.
“Joe is anxious and he desperately wants to come home,” according to a source.
“This is obviously a very critical hearing for Joe and his family. We are hopeful that the Court will grant him bond,” Mr Leonard told stated.
Teresa‘s husband has been away from his family for over three years as he began a 41-month prison sentence for fraud in March 2016. While in custody, a judge ruled that he was to be deported to Italy immediately after his sentence.
He filed an appeal in November and was released from FCI Fort Dix and put into ICE custody while he awaited a verdict in the case. His appeal was denied in April, but he filed to appeal of that decision as well.
Teresa, 47, revealed on the RHONY reunion that she would not follow Joe to Italy and they would divorce if he was deported, “To pick up my children and just move to another country, I don’t think that would be good for my children. So I mean, so no, I probably wouldn’t.”
The couple got married in 1999 and share four daughters: Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.
