“His brother, his sister and several other members of the Giudice family, as well as myself, were present when he turned himself in to the prison, including Teresa.
It was obviously a very emotional day, but this is a very strong family with a tremendous support system and they will get through this, just as they did when Teresa was away.”

Joe will undoubtedly miss his family while he’s behind bars, but he’s determined to do something positive with his time in prison. “I’m looking at it like rehabilitation for me,” he told People. “I am not going to be able to drink for a while which is good because I don’t even know when it’s been since I haven’t had a drink. It’s been a long time. Definitely the whole year I definitely drank every day a couple bottles at night just to go to bed.”
Just before going in Joe spent his time with his wife…
and their four daughters.
