DANBURY Conn. -- "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Theresa Giudice, who surrendered Monday at Danbury’s Federal Correctional Institution, will be serving a shorter prison sentence than planned, according to a report by WTNH-TV News 8. 

The announcement came after she had served only three days in the Danbury prison. She pleaded guilty under a deal to charges of bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. 

The Bureau of Prisons website lists her release date as Feb. 5, 2016, which is 54 days earlier than planned. 

"Orange Is The New Black" is based upon the author's experiences at Danbury’s Federal Correctional Institution. It is also where R&B singer Lauryn Hill also served time in the prison.
