“Teresa tried to keep everything as normal as possible for the family leading up to the sentencing,” a source told “She tried to not cry in front of her four daughters, but she couldn’t help but shed a few tears. It’s not lost on Teresa that Wednesday could have been her final day of freedom for a very long time. And Joe knows the judge is likely to throw the book at him, and sentence him to at least three years in prison, too.”
