Fraudulent activities can involve both people in and out of the spotlight. Reality television stars and New Jersey residents, Teresa Giudice, and her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, have recently pleaded guilty to several fraud charges. These charges include concealing income, lying during bankruptcy proceedings, and wire and mail fraud.
There are all types of fraud charges, and depending on the accusations, they can be prosecuted in either state or federal court. This particular high-profile criminal case was heard in federal court.
