“I think she was anxious to get in, get this thing started, get it behind her, and get back to her family. Her four girls are her primary focus,” the lawyer revealed.

To prepare for her time behind bars, Giudice spoke to recently released prisoners from the correctional institute. As Leonard explained, “They told her to keep her head up, that she would make it through.”

Teresa’s husband Joe will begin his 3.5 year sentence after his wife is released, a sentence granted to accommodate the pair’s four young daughters.
