Teresa Giudice's Husband Joe Giudice To Serve Prison S entence at FCI Fort Dix

Joe Giudice revealed on the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" special Sunday night that he will be serving his 41-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institute in Fort Dix, a low-security prison in Burlington County.

In a conversation with his brother-in-law Joe Gorga on the way to the Giudices' vacation home in Manahawkin (since foreclosed upon), Giudice indicated a sign for Fort Dix and said, "That's where I'm stationed to go at the (bleeping) end of March." He also called his daughter Gia, in another car, to point out the prison, joking, "I'm gonna become a military expert."

Fort Dix FCI includes a minimum-security prison camp, and the entire facility houses 4,655 male offenders. The average sentence served per prisoner is 89 months, and the average age of prisoners is 37. Most of the inmates are from the surrounding area, with a large number of "deportable aliens," according to the prison handbook.

Giudice and his wife Teresa pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. He reports in March. Following his sentence, he faces deportation to his native Italy because he never became a United States citizen. Teresa is currently serving her 15-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institute in Danbury, Conn., and is due to be released to home confinement in December.
