Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino To Be Sentenced For Tax Evasion

Sorrentino showed up at New Jersey federal court on Friday with his fiancée Lauren Pesce. Mike admitted to concealing his income in 2011 and he and his brother were charged in 2014, with several offenses related to taxes on their almost $9 million income.

"The Situation" will remain on bail until he has to report. "They are not. Tax fraud is as serious as any other form of theft from the government, and the sentences imposed today should make that abundantly clear". Marc got two years in prison.

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

Prosecutors painted a contrasting picture. Sorrentino's brother, Marc Sorrentino, was also sentenced on Friday.

"The law requires all Americans to pay our fair share of taxes", U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said in a statement.

In January, the brash-talking gym rat - who is now sober after struggling with drug and alcohol abuse in the past - pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. Sorrentino reportedly paid no taxes in 2011, despite making somewhere around $2 million.

"Tax crimes, plain and simple, are an outright theft from the hardworking American public", said John Tafur of IRS Criminal Investigation.

"The Situation" appeared in all six seasons of Jersey Shore from 2009 to 2012.

Republican former Gov. Chris Christie had criticized the show for promoting stereotypes.

We can only hope there will be at least one Jersey Shore Family Prison Visit.
