Maintaining their innocence, Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and her husband Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice pleaded not guilty to the latest fraud charges against them in federal court in Newark, N.J., on Wednesday morning.
As RadarOnline.com reported, the controversial couple was slapped with two additional fraud charges of bank fraud and loan application fraud on Monday.
Originally indicted on 39 counts on July 29, the ante was upped to 41 counts with the new charges stemming from a $361,250 mortgage loan that Teresa obtained in 2005 in which Joe allegedly falsely stated that Teresa was employed as a realtor with a monthly salary of $15,000.
Teresa was in fact unemployed at the time, prosectors alleged.
Each of the new charges carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
The Giudice’s trial is set to start in February of 2014.
