Teresa Giudice Files Malpractice Suit Against Attorney, Blames Him for Prison Time
Teresa Giudice is making some moves from her prison cell. Entertainment Tonight reports that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has filed a malpractice suit against her former bankruptcy attorney, claiming that he is the reason she is behind bars.
“As alleged in the complaint — if he had taken appropriate action as her attorney, entrusted with her welfare, she would not be incarcerated,” [said Attorney Carlos Cuevas, who filed the complaint for Giudice].
“The missteps were so bad she had to plead guilty to bankruptcy fraud. … Emotionally it’s a tremendous strain, because imagine going to bed at night and not being able to say to your children, ‘I love you.'”
Giudice is currently serving a 15-month sentence after she and her husband pleaded guilty to fraud last year. She is expected to be released in February of 2016.
