‘Real Housewives’ husband Joe Giudice hires high-profile ‘Bridgegate’ attorney
"Real Housewives of New Jersey” husband Joe Giudice has added a high-profile attorney from the ‘Bridgegate’ trial in his mission to evade deportation and stay in the U.S.
Roseland attorney Michael Critchley represented Bridget Anne Kelly in the ‘Bridgegate’ trial. Kelly was deputy chief of staff to former Gov. Chris Christie.
Critchley also currently represents Democratic powerbroker George Norcross in his case against Gov. Phil Murphy.
Giuidice was ordered to be deported to his native country of Italy back in October.
He served three years and five months in prison for bankruptcy fraud.
Giudice and his wife, Teresa, pleaded guilty in 2014 to financial fraud. Giudice is an Italian citizen who was brought to the U.S. as a baby and says he wasn't aware he wasn't an American citizen.
Teresa Giudice served nearly a year in prison and was freed in December 2015. Joe Giudice was released from prison last month and was sent to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility in southeast Pennsylvania.
