Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, seen here Oct. 15, 2014, from the reality TV show “Real Housewives of New Jersey” has been released from federal prison and is waiting to see if he’ll be deported back to Italy.

NEWARK, N.J. — The husband of one of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality TV stars has been released from federal prison and is waiting to see if he’ll be deported back to Italy.

An attorney for Joe Giudice says he’s been sent to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility in central Pennsylvania.

Giudice and wife Teresa pleaded guilty in 2014 to financial fraud. Joe Giudice has said he came to the U.S. as an infant and wasn’t aware he wasn’t an American citizen.

Teresa Giudice served nearly a year in prison and was freed in December 2015.

Under a sentencing agreement that allowed the couple to care for their four young children, Joe Giudice began serving his 41-month sentence after his wife was released.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
