The Situation Gets 8-Month Sentence in Federal Tax Case

The Situation Gets 8-Month Sentence in Federal Tax Case

Mike Sorrentino, better known as "The Situation" from MTV's Jersey Shore, has been sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion, CNN Reports.

Sorrentino and his older brother, Marc, were indicted in 2014 on conspiracy charges related to $8.9 million income they raked in between 2010 and 2013.

Mike's brother Marc was sentenced to two years in jail, and a $75,000 fine for aiding in the preparation of a false and fraudulent tax return.

Going by the nickname "The Situation", Sorrentino was an arrogant charmer who liked to show off his chiseled torso.

The brothers were charged back in 2014 with multiple tax offenses related to almost $9 million in income. His attorney was hoping for probation, but the government had pushed for at least a 14-month prison term.

The accountant, Gregg Marks, was separately charged with helping the brothers to avoid paying $550,000 to $1,500,000 in taxes.

The reality star spoke with ET in March, ahead of the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation premiere, where he explained his plans to try and move forward from the situation. Marc Sorrentino was ordered to serve a year of supervised release and pay a $7,500 fine. Last year, he signed a bill capping the amount of state money universities can pay for speakers, because Rutgers University paid "Jersey Shore" cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi $32,000 in 2011.

In a statement to the judge before sentencing, he apologised for his conduct and said he is "overcoming my demons and putting my life back together" after years of alcohol and drug use.
