Joe Giudice was released from his Allenwood, Pennsylvania federal prison and handed over to ICE in the early hours of Thursday, March 14, RadarOnline.com can confirm.
"He was released overnight," a Bureau of Prisons spokesperson exclusively told Radar.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa's felon husband, 48, served three years behind bars on multiple fraud charges.
Radar was the very first to report that the father of four would be thrown into the custody of immigration officials upon his release.
Now, Joe awaits an immigration judge's decision on his fate.
As Radar exclusively reported, the jailbird was ordered to be deported back to his native Italy in October for his crimes. He appealed the ruling the following month, and the final decision is still pending.
If he's kicked out of the country, he will be booted from his marriage as well, his wife Teresa said.
“I’m not doing a long-distance relationship. I’m not doing it. I want somebody with me every day," the 46-year-old said.
She already seems to have moved on from her husband of 20 years.
Though Teresa's attorney claimed they were just friends, and he was helping her to her car because she was wearing heels and had been drinking wine, Radar spotted the two together at least four times during the Presidents Day Weekend getaway.
Radar reported that Teresa visited a divorce attorney in January in preparation for Joe’s deportation.
