Juicy Joe's in trouble with the law — again!

Teresa Giuidice's husband Joe was indicted by a New Jersey grand jury Tuesday on charge of fraudulently obtaining a driver's license, authorities told NorthJersey.com.

According to the site, the indictment charges the 40-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey hubby of using false identification and impersonating his brother, Pietro, to obtain a New Jersey driver's license in June 2010.

The charge of wrongfully using identifying information is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, NorthJersey.com reports. The impersonation charge carries a maximum 18-month prison sentence.

This isn't the first time Teresa's hubby has found himself in trouble with the law. The duo filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in 2009, citing $11 million in debt. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Joe was accused of hiding assets from the court. The paper alleges that U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge, Morris Stern, signed off on a settlement between Joe and the trustee, John Sywilok. The agreement does not apply to Teresa, who is still pursuing a discharge of her debts.

In September, however, Joe withdrew his bankruptcy filing to deal with his debts.
