Teresa Giudice plead guilty to four charges of fraud last month in Newark, NJ, and now, as she awaits her July 8 sentencing, the facility where she will likely do her time has been revealed.
In a March 14 report by Radar Online, West Virginia's FPC Alderson (where Martha Stewart served her five-month sentence for insider trading) is named as the minimum security prison where Giudice could serve up to two years.
"Alderson was opened as the first federal prison for women in 1927 and houses approximately 1,055 female prisoners," Radar reported. "Each prison cell bunks two inmates with a bunk bed, desk, chair and locker. If Giudice is given time in prison, she will work seven and a half hours per day, five days a week, for 12 to 40 cents an hour — the jobs include things like maintenance work, landscaping and food service."
Because the prison is so low-security, it is often referred to as Camp Cupcake. On the premises, which has no barbed wire or fences surrounding the facility, inmates have access to things such as scissors, razors, makeup, and foundation, which are typically banned in other prisons.
Although the facility seems pretty comfortable, Giudice would rather be at her home in New Jersey, understandably, and is hoping to receive house arrest as opposed to jail time.
