New Charges in Indictment Against 'RHONJ' Stars

6/17/2014

Entertainment Tonight.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice have been indicted on additional fraud charges.

Court papers obtained by ET on Monday indicate the additional counts added to a previous Grand Jury indictment include one count of bank fraud and one count of loan application fraud. Dozens of original counts handed down in the indictment in July -- including conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud, as well as charges against Joe for failing to file past tax returns -- remain in place.

According to the latest superseding indictment, the additional counts against the reality stars stem from a $361,250 mortgage loan that Teresa obtained in July 2005. The bank fraud and loan application fraud counts each carry a maximum potential penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

In August, the couple pleaded not guilty to the multiple federal fraud charges and the two remain free on $500,000 bail bonds. The pair -- who were previously required to surrender their passports to the court -- are scheduled to be in federal court on Wednesday.
