Teresa Giudice: Fires Crisis Manager; Wants To Serve Sentence At Halfway House

This morning Teresa’s crisis PR representative Wendy Feldman fired her because Teresa refused to follow her advice, and allegedly took it upon herself to write a letter to the judge begging for a prison assignment at Danbury Federal Prison in Connecticut. And even worse – Teresa is now attempting to serve the bulk of her sentence in a halfway house under a seldom used Second Chance Act!

First Teresa’a attorney sent a letter to Judge Salas requesting clarification of the judge’s “language” during sentencing, explaining that it wasn’t explicitly clear if she was recommending a prison camp or detention center.

But today, Teresa’s attorney went one step further and asked the judge to amend her recommendation so Teresa can serve 12 months of her 15 month federal sentence in a halfway house citing the Second Chance Act.
Prosecutors swiftly opposed the request. “It was clearly not the Court’s intention at the sentencing in this matter to sentence defendant to serve all or virtually all of her sentence in a halfway house,” their rebuttal states.

“The Court made detailed, express findings on the record about the need to sentence defendant to jail,” they state. “To amend the judgment now to include a recommendation of 12 months in a halfway house would be to undercut all of these findings completely.”

"This is clearly not the first time my advice has not been followed, but this is the time where the stakes are the highest," Wendy Feldman tells Usmagazine.com.

"Both for my clients and myself, I work hard to maintain a strong relationship with the Bureau of Prisons. As I've tried to instruct Teresa, this is a process that must be respected. A designation to a camp is a gift, not a requirement from the BOP and the judge. By making this request, Teresa has jeopardized months of work, months of preparation and in fact may jeopardize where she is ultimately designated or sent to."
