Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino Sentenced to 8 Months in Prison

He was sentenced to two years in prison for tax fraud.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was sentenced this morning to 8 months in prison for tax evasion.

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. In addition, he has been ordered to complete 500 hours of community service and was fined $10,000, which must be paid within 30 days, in addition to the $123,913 in restitution that is already paid. His brother, Marc Sorrentino, was also sentenced on Friday.

Going by the nickname "The Situation", Sorrentino was an arrogant charmer who liked to show off his chiseled torso. Marc Sorrentino was arrested along with his brother in 2014.

A judge sentenced him shortly after his brother, Marc Sorrentino, received a two-year sentence on a similar charge.




That would be Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Deena Cortese, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Pauly "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, and Angelina Pivarnick. 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.

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.

He apologized to the court during brief remarks and said he has overcome substance abuse.

Sorrentino arrived with his fiancée, Lauren Pesce, by his side.
