U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas has sentenced Teresa Giudice to 15 months in federal prison and husband Joe Giudice to 41 months, while also ordering both to individually pay $414,588 in restitution.

The couple also faces two years of probation upon release, nearly the maximum sentence that could have been given after they both pleaded guilty in the conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, alongside three types of bankruptcy that took place earlier this year.

Teresa broke down in tears before her sentencing saying, ‘I am more sorry than anyone will ever know,’ adding to the judge, ‘I will make this right.’
