Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is heading to prison for eight months for tax evasion.
Along with the prison sentence, he’ll serve two years of supervised release and must complete 500 hours of community service. Additionally, a $10,000 fine has to be paid within 30 days, according to People.
The Jersey Shore star and his brother, Marc were initially indicted in 2014 for conspiring to defraud the government. The two allegedly failed to properly pay taxes on $8.9 million in income from 2010 to 2012. Both men were later indicted on additional charges of tax evasion, structuring and falsifying records.
Sorrentino pled guilty to one count of tax evasion, while his bother pled guilty to one count of aiding in the preparation of a false and fraudulent tax return. He was sentenced to two years in prison.
