Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe will reportedly accept a plea deal in court this week, which will result in the Real Housewives of New Jersey star and New York Times Bestselling author remaining a free woman, but will put Joe behind bars for at least five years.

A source close to the case revealed to In Touch Weekly on Friday, Feb. 28, that if the judge accepts the Giudice's plea deal, Joe will serve a minimum of five years in federal prison while Teresa will likely be put on probation for less than five years -- and that's not all.

The Giudice's will also have to fork over a whopping $11 million in restitution.

The deal will also keep Joe, who is not a U.S. citizen, in the country.

“You’ve got to keep living life and being positive,” Teresa previously told In Touch Weekly in regard to her continuing to live life for her kids, despite the devastating circumstances. “You can’t just curl up in a ball and crawl into a hole. What’s that going to do? I want the kids to enjoy their childhood. And to be the best mom I can be.”

Teresa and Joe are scheduled to appear in federal court on Tuesday, where the judge on the case will decide whether or not to accept the said plea deal.
