A "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star preparing to head to federal prison for bankruptcy fraud has had his license suspended for two years.
A state judge Thursday suspended Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice's license and fined him the maximum of $10,000. Giudice pleaded guilty in October of unlawful use of an ID and impersonation. His guilty plea included an 18-month sentence.
That will run concurrent with his 41-month federal sentence handed down in October for bankruptcy fraud and failing to file taxes.
An Italian citizen by birth who never became a U.S. citizen, Giudice also is expected to be deported once his federal prison term ends.
His wife, Teresa, is serving a 15-month federal sentence on the fraud charges. He will begin his sentence when hers is over.
