Joe Giudice's 41-month stay at New Jersey's Federal Correctional Institution, Fort Dix, is going to be absolute hell, according to former inmate Earl David. Click through RadarOnline.com's gallery to find out why!
Joe Giudice will be heading to prison in March to begin serving his 41-month sentence at New Jersey's Federal Correctional Institution, Fort Dix. Between poor living conditions and safety issues, the 43-year-old reality star might have a hard time during his sentence, prison expert Earl David told Radar.
David served over 13 months at Fort Dix and revealed exclusively to Radar what really goes on behind the scenes at the notorious prison.
The former inmate speculated that Guidice will most likely end up in "the camp"—a smaller building adjacent to the main prison. This area houses about 400 people and functions somewhat like a large dorm, similar to the Connecticut facility in which Giudice's wife Teresa recently served time.
Despite it's quaint nickname, the camp's conditions are questionable—especially the bathrooms, claimed David.
"In some of the buildings the showers are disgusting. It's horrible and they're falling apart," he said. "There's no toilet paper in the bathroom. You have to go to another building to pick up tissue once a month. They give you like four rolls of toilet paper."
David also explained that visits are particularly terrifying.
"When you go for a visit you have to strip naked, they check you from head to toe. You've got to sit in a chair for like two hours straight. If you have to go to the bathroom then your visit's terminated—it's really crazy," David told Radar.
The Bravo star may also have to face a bit of boredom https://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/joe-giudice-prison-sentence-teresa-giudice-kids-cameras/, said David, who said there isn't a whole lot to do at Fort Dix.
"Most of the time you just walk the track," said the former inmate. "They have a boxing court. It's horrible; every day is the same thing. It's got no rehabilitative measures whatsoever—it's pure punishment."
David warned Giudice to have all of his paperwork in order to try to avoid fights with his fellow inmates.
"He's got to make sure he has his paperwork because one-third of the place is cho-mos," or child molesters, claimed David. "If you're a white person, you're automatically considered a cho-mo, and then you can get attacked."
"There are people who are getting attacked all the time," alleged David. "They put a lock in a sock and they whack people over the head. When I was there, every week someone got attacked. It's very dangerous." A public information officer for the prison told Radar, "We cannot speak to the former inmate's comments and there are currently no complaints related to the specific issues raised."
