In Touch Weekly can exclusively reveal that lawyers for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are close to a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney’s office.

A source close to the case revealed that if the judge accepts the deal, Joe will serve a minimum of five years in federal prison while Teresa is looking at a maximum of five years probation.

In addition, the couple will have to pay up to $11 million in restitution and, as it stands, Joe will not be deported.

The Giudices have been battling a series of legal woes since they were charged with 39 counts of fraud last July and two additional counts in November.
