On March 4, both Teresa and Joe entered a guilty plea as part of a plea deal which would lead to both parties doing jail time. While Teresa will likely do two years, Joe could do around five, and once he completes the term, he may be forced to leave the country because of his crimes.

"This is not a good position to be in," immigration attorney Michael Wildes told E! News on March 4. "Joe's green card will not hold water."

Wildes stated that it is "quite likely" that Joe could be targeted by immigration due to his "aggravated felony," which is classified as "any crime of fraud or deceit relating to tax evasion in which the loss to the government exceeds $10,000."

Following the plea, Teresa released a statement, noting that she was heartbroken about the plea, and what it would mean for her and Joe's four young daughters.

No word on what will happen to the girls when Teresa and Joe go to prison.

The Giudices are due back in court on July 8.
