The Taste of Freedom! Teresa Giudice No Longer Under House Arrest
Reality star Teresa Giudice is free after completing her house arrest.
Giudice's lawyer James Leonard confirmed the news to People magazine. Leonard said in a statement, "Effective this morning, Teresa is no longer subject to the parameters of home confinement. She is now free in all aspects from the custodial portion of her sentence.”
He added, "The restitution has been paid in full and what remains is a two-year period of supervised release, the terms of which we will remain in full compliance with.”
In October 2014, Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison after she found guilty of fraud earlier that year. Though she was released from prison this past December, she was still serving home confinement, given only a few excursions outside of the home, including a public appearance at Melissa Gorga's boutique opening in January.
The 43-year-old is now free to leave whenever she pleases. Leonard shared, "Teresa is very much looking forward to closing this dark chapter in her life and moving forward both personally and professionally.”
The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star is celebrating her freedom by releasing the prison memoir “Turning the Tables,” out on Tuesday.
