Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino Given 8-Month Prison Sentence

05 October, 2018, 23:44 | Author: Dominic Spencer

"The courts recognize the severity of these crimes and now Michael and Marc Sorrentino are convicted felons with prison sentences to serve for intentionally disregarding their tax obligations to our country".

The Sorrentino brothers were sentenced Friday morning after having pleaded guilty in January to multiple charges of tax fraud associated with nearly $9million in income.

Through his lawyer, he said he "deeply regrets his failure to pay his taxes, and has spent the past several years turning his life into something positive".

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, best known for starring on MTV's "Jersey Shore", has been sentenced to prison for tax evasion. He also pleaded guilty in January.

"The Situation" is going from the shore house to the big house. The reality television star must also complete 500 hours of community service and "was given $123,913 in restitution already paid, plus a fine of $10,000 that must be paid within 30 days", People reported. Marc Sorrentino was arrested along with his brother in 2014.


The TV personality appeared in New Jersey federal court Friday to receive his sentencing, which includes two years of supervised release. He and his brother were charged for filing false tax returns for approximately $8.9 million in income between 2010 and 2012.

Sorrentino first hit the public spotlight when Jersey Shore debuted, with the show quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and making instant stars out of its hard-partying cast members.

In April, Sorrentino announced he was engaged to Lauren Pesce.

Mike's Jersey Shore co-stars were all in attendance at the courthouse.
