Joe Giudice: DMV Fraud Trial Postponed Again

Joe Giudice: DMV Fraud Trial Postponed Again

Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Joe Giudice was scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Jan 13, to face charges on driver’s license fraud.  Many speculated about the circumstances of the trial since news outlets did not report sightings of Joe at the Paterson courthouse on Monday. According to Northjersey.com, the state trial against Joe has been postponed once again.

Many were under the impression, the DMV trial was scheduled to start on Monday, Jan 13. However, Monday’s scheduled court date was yet another status conference to set a trial date and file motions,  not the actual start of the trial.

As of late Tuesday (01-14-2014) evening, a new court date had not been scheduled.

This new delay is due to calendar conflicts of  Joe’s attorney, Miles Feinstein. Feinstein is currently preoccupied conducting jury selection for an upcoming murder case.

How many court dates to “set a trial date” and “file motions” will this case undergo? Will Joe ever get his day in court?

Joe’s attorney, Miles Feinstein appears highly confident his client will be exonerated considering he’s rejected all plea deals presented by the prosecutor. If convicted of DMV charges, Joe could face up to 10 years in the slammer. That outcome could result in Joe serving time for the DMV state charges when his federal fraud trial begins in April. The likelihood of Joe appearing in court to face his federal charges clothed in prison attire–o’range jumpsuit and shackles– is probable.

In my iJoe-and-Teresa-Giudicemaginary playful mind, I picture Joe and Teresa feasting on a romantic “celebratory” dinner of dry aged kobe ribeye steak, sipping on Chateau Margaux 1787, basking in blissful ignorance over their (temporary) victory and Joe saying “fuggedaboutit” as they toast the night away. The scene takes place at the Chart House restaurant in New Jersey overlooking the New York harbor. Pardon my cheap harlequin lavatory literary moment — I simply could not resist!

On a serious note, I’m thoroughly disgusted by the continuous postponements in this case. In addition, I’m not buying the numerous delays as scheduling conflicts or bottlenecks in the system. According to a source, the Passaic County prosecutor’s office is handling this case with kid gloves. I will be paying close attention to further developments surrounding the proceedings. Stay tuned.

    Thanks for the update. I was curious since I couldn’t find anything about this online. They will be facing the music soon enough. They know that they are going away and their only hope is delays.

    • Dr Seuss

      Good morning Jenny! Very true. Especially in their federal fraud cause. Those crooks want as many delays on that one as possible because they’re a “done dollar” there.

      In this particular case, I have the burning inkling the delays are being done purposefully by the state in preparation for additional charges to be announced (allegedly). I’m watching this case closely and something bigger is on the horizon (allegedly).

      • Jennymckitty

        It is all very interesting. Thanks for keeping us updated. I can’t imagine how stressful it would be to live with these charges hanging over your head. I think I would rather take a plea deal and get it over with.

        • Dr Seuss

          My pleasure Jen! Yes, for decent law-abiding citizens like us that got caught up in some mess, we couldn’t sleep at night. However, for these crooks they sleep like babies because they have no conscience or remorse.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Postponed again? WOW! Yup I bet they are treating this as a victory…unreal!!!

    • Dr Seuss

      Hey you!!! You found us…lol!!!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      WaWa!!! So good to see you here!

  • Babson_Chick

    Good Morning Doc!! Thanks for the update. I’m not surprised at an another delay, with more to come I’m sure. If his attorney is busy with a murder trial this could drag out for a looooooooong time – maybe that’s the intent??!!!

    • Dr Seuss

      Hey Babs! A belated good morning to you. I’m so late…sorry! You said it all here!! I agree!

  • DLister

    Thought: could the delay possibly truly be motivated by the RHONJ taping schedule, in a move to prevent the Bravo cameras from capturing it?

    • Jennymckitty

      A continuance is the best bet for keeping him out of jail on bail. Sometimes the more delays, the better the plea deal.

    • Dr Seuss

      That would not prevent Bravo cameras from capturing the case. The production company (Sirens Media) that films the show works on a very flexible schedule. Reality tv characters can call the production companies for…Bravo, TLC, VH1 at any time…during on/off season to capture significant moments. As a matter of fact, the characters are contractually obligated to do so. Additionally, courts don’t work around television show schedules and wouldn’t delay cases to suit the needs of filming.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I was under the impression that the courts in NJ only allow credentialed news media to televise in the courtroom. I doubt that Sirens Media is credentialed.

        • Dr Seuss

          They could send NBC/Bravo filming crew and I’m sure Sirens Media already have NBC/Bravo contractor press passes. Either way Bravo will get the footage.

          • WestCoastFeed

            In that case, Bravo is probably as unhappy as we are that this trial has not been scheduled yet. What are they going to film with Teresa? Fights with the new cast members? Juicy cheating?

            • twifan2

              If that’s the case WCF, I’ll be watching Downton Abbey-again. :)

              • WestCoastFeed

                I love Downton Abbey. It’s a well-written soap opera with an outstanding cast and beautiful sets and costumes. It will be my Sunday night viewing for months.

                • twifan2

                  :)
                  I love that show also. Can’t wait for S5!

                  • WestCoastFeed

                    Did you miss episode 1? The new season has begun.

                    • twifan2

                      No, I’ve seen all of the new season. :(
                      Time to rewatch when NJ starts up. :)

                • twifan2

                  If you get a chance, WCF-check out Call The Midwife.
                  That’s a good show also. :)

                  • WestCoastFeed

                    I watch it. and, of course, Sherlock.

                    • twifan2

                      :)
                      Sherlock! That’s what I’ll watch if BH doesn’t do something about Brandi, Kim!

                      Oh! Have you heard anything about when The Manzo’s show will air?

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      I’d guess they are filming it now. Lauren is planning the engagement party. The boys are very busy, promoting the Hoboken restaurant and the Meadowlands sports bar, along with blk. So there’s lots of stuff to film. Caroline is quite buddy-buddy with some of the cooking network stars so I’m guessing some filming with Robert Irvine. In fact she’s been showing off so many of her dishes on twitter, that now she has begun a diet hoping to drop 30 lbs. Jac has been making autism appearances, plus her beauty stuff.

                      My guess is that it will appear sometime in the Spring or early Summer.

            • Dr Seuss

              Oh I think they have a gold mine of stuff to film related to their legal matters without even having to step into a courtroom.

              • twifan2

                PLEASE don’t even suggest a spin off for those slimmers! :/

              • WestCoastFeed

                It looks like Tre’s crisis PR manager is working hard to depict Tre as the innocent woman, wronged by her cad of a husband. I wonder if Bravo will play along with that.

                • twifan2

                  Doesn’t help her ’cause’ with stories out there about Tre ‘turning a blind eye’ to Juicy’s cheating.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Not again!!! Did they at least set another “status” date?

    • Dr Seuss

      Morning WCF! As of late last night, no new court date had been scheduled.

  • Rhett Butler

    I love you, Dr. Seuss!! Anyway, this is ridiculous. This shouldn’t be allowed. If he is guilty for this or if he and Teresa are BOTH guilty for the other stuff, that means they’re allowing criminals to walk the streets due to all of these postponements.

    • Dr Seuss

      Awww…you’re sweet! thank you :-)

      I agree. I keep maintaining hope karma is real and justice will kick their asses (it better!)

  • twifan2

    Dr Snark-O-Suessous! :)

    Stupendous article! Thank you.
    Thank you for keeping us updated about that scum.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I love the special treatment these special people are getting. I hope the Judge is up for re-election!!!!

    • twifan2

      Hope that judge ‘steps down’!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Just judging by her appearance, she looks like a very tough cookie.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Goodie, Goodie. Let’s get this show on the road!!

        • twifan2

          Certainly hope she’ll be TOUGH on Juicy! :)

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I could have built a ship in a bottle for all the time these crooks have been scott free!!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Our murder trials here last for a max of 4 days, so this should be an easy one. Voire Dire takes more time than the trials!!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, naws. And I’d guess that any Giudice trial, this one or the Federal one, would take a huge jury pool to get down to 12.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        It seems like his lawyer is ALWAYS on another trial more important than Joe. And won’t we all feel duped when he cops a plea!!!!!

        • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

          Feinstein needs to get paid from somebody because he knows he isn’t going to get paid from Joe and Teresa’s lawyer probably won’t with her either.
          Did they take these cases as pro bono???? Nah, I don’t think so.

      • twifan2

        I wonder if the Juicys’ lawyers are trying to wait out & see if the judge Juicy will go in front of will not be re-elected? That’s why they keep re-scheduling. Just a thought.

  • WestCoastFeed

    The closer it gets to the April court date for the Federal case, the more likely it is that this trial will get bumped again since Fed cases trump State cases. Rats and double rats!!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    All I want to know is when are Barney and Betty Rubble going to get their assess thrown in the federal slammer? Isn’t that trial supposed to occur in February also?

    These crooks must have the NJ CJ system in their back pocket (where their wallets are) and must be paying someone off big-time. I never heard of so many postponements in my life.

    These two little pigs have scammed long enough. Time to take away the expensive toys, the house, and get those orange jumpsuits on (which will go horribly with your complexion Tre!

    • twifan2

      4Hs! :)
      Hi Hi! Loved your BH’s recap story! :)

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Hi Twi! I’m glad you liked it! Nice to see you as always!

        • twifan2

          So glad to see you here! :)
          Hope you doing great so far in 2014!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            2014 has been so awesome (December 2013 was very strange–although I had a wonderful Holiday with husband and family).

            How is your 2014 going? I hope, awesome–and I also hope you are feeling better. NAWS told me you were sick!
