Nunn said that Davenport determined that the witness Giudice called to support his claim of only drinking after the crash "completely lacked credibility" and "was out and out lying." The judge wanted Giudice to get the message that he had to re spect motor vehicle laws, Nunn wrote. Over the past 20 years, Giudice's license has been suspended for 9.4 years, and, at the time of the Municipal Court trial, he had 39 points on his license. The sanctions were for such offenses as speeding, leaving the scene of an accident and careless driv ice. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended, providing the community service is completed. The judge separately fined Giudice $236 for careless driving and failing to maintain a lane. The Giudices are facing another real life drama: their personal belongings and contents of their lav ing. Afflitto contends the DWI was Giudice's first and that he was cooperative with police and didn't harm anyone by flipping his truck. For the DWI, Davenport imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver's license for a year; and ordered him to perform 30 days of community serv ish mansion in Towaco are scheduled to be auctioned off on Aug. 22 to pay creditors. The Giudices filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, with reported debts of $11 million and income of just $80,000. Peggy Wright: 973-267-1142; ALL FURNITURE, MATTRESSES & AREA RUGS ON SALE HOME SALE u 'Housewives' husband: DWI penalty harsh By PEGGY WRIGHT STAFF WRITER The husband of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice will be the lead in his own drama on Aug. 20, when he is expected in Superior Court in Morristown to appeal the sentence he got for driving while intoxicated. Montville resident Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, 40, was found guilty in March by township Municipal Court Judge Seth I. Davenport of driving while intoxicated on Jan. 14 on Jacksonville Road. He also was found guilty of careless driving and failure to maintain a lane after the 1:47 a.m. accident in which he flipped his truck. The husband of the Bravo channel reality TV show star is fighting the sentence that Davenport imposed, arguing it is too harsh by unfairly including 30 days of community service. If Giudice fails to complete the service, a 30-day jail sentence would be imposed, under Davenport's order. His driver's license was revoked for a year. In court papers, defense lawyer Joseph T. Afflitto Jr. argued that Davenport abused his discretion and that Superior Court Judge Philip J. Maenza, upon his review on Aug. 20, should amend the sentence. Morris County Assistant Prosecutor Matheu Nunn, in court papers, said the imposition of community service or 30 days in jail was fully within the judge's discretion. Nunn noted that Giudice has an abysmal driving record and that Davenport rejected his defense that he drank alcohol at a neighbor's house only after he flipped his truck. Afflitto was not available for comment and Giudice could not be reached as his published home number has been disconnected. Police investigating the crash found Giudice at his neighbor's house. At trial, he tried to use what is known as a "glove box defense," or claim of drinking after an accident so a blood test reading would be invalid. His blood-alcohol content after the crash was 0.11 percent, or above the 0.08 percent at which a mo- SALE $3999 i HI I DYtANPC DUAL-RECUNING SECTIOrUL - ; Reg. $5597.

In a written decision Wednesday in federal court in Brooklyn, U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis found that an entry exam used by the mostly white department was unfair to black and Hispanic applicants. He ordered the city to explain why it wanted to hire new firefighters based on an "invalid test." Attorneys for the city said they were disappointed by the ruling. They warned it would force the city to pay millions in overtime to make up for understaffing. k Download our free IPhone App from Tunes Experience Mscy any way you Ilk I IHj Follow us en twHter j Become our fan on facebook To order call 1-800-45-MACYS.
