Joe Giudice Claims Prison Won’t Let Him Enter An Alcohol-Treatment Program!

Page Six reports that Joe Giudice, husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice says prison officials are improperly preventing him from entering an alcohol-treatment program as he serves a sentence for bankruptcy fraud.

The father-of-four said authorities at Fort Dix are using a detainer placed on him by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a reason to exclude him from the prison’s treatment program, according to a court filing Friday.

Inmates at the prison can’t join the program if a detainer prevents completion of the community treatment aspect, according to the Bureau of Prisons’ website. Giudice is to be deported to his native Italy after completing his 41-month sentence under federal immigration laws, reports the publication.

However, a judge recommended that Giudice participate in the program after he and his wife were sentenced in 2014.

The alcohol-treatment program would have helped Joe reduce his prison sentence by up to one year.

Giudice also claimed in the filing that the prison is preventing him from fighting his scheduled deportation. The prison does not allow inmates to appear before immigration judges.

Giudice said other federal prisons allow inmates to challenge their deportations. The earliest he will be able to challenge the order is 2019.
