The husband of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice will be deported after he leaves jail next year, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Giudice, who appeared in an immigration court in York, Pennsylvania, via teleconference, can file an appeal before November 9.

Giudice is an Italian citizen who came to the United States when he was a baby and did not know he was not a US citizen.

"He came here when he was one year old, his family was living the American dream," he said. Attorney Miles Feinstein told NJ.com in July 2013. "He came here so young, he never anticipated anything like this."

Giudice is scheduled to be released from prison in March 2019. He is serving a 41-month federal prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud at FCI Allenwood, about 165 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

The couple pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud and filing false loan applications to obtain $ 5 million in mortgages and construction loans. Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to not paying around $ 200,000 in income taxes.

Teresa Giudice was released from prison in December 2015 after serving 11 months at the Danbury Federal Correction Institute in Connecticut.

Messages seeking comments from the couple's attorneys and Teresa Giudice's publicist were not returned immediately on Wednesday.
