Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino sentenced to eight months in prison

The Situation

The Situation is heading for incarceration.

Jersey Shore star Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino has been sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion. "People can look at me and say, 'If he can do it, I can'".

"Michael accepts the court's judgment", Sorrentino's lawyer, Henry E. Klingeman, told the Daily News.

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

His "Jersey Shore" castmates, including Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese, Angelina Pivarnick and Pauly "Pauly D" DelVecchio, were seen showing their support for him before the sentencing.




The show's spinoff, "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" debuted earlier this year. He also appeared in the recent spin-off, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, the second season of which is now airing.

The self-proclaimed "guido" became a fan favorite as he lived by the GTL code of "gym-tan-laundry" in a communal beach house decked out with "Scarface" movie posters and its famous mallard duck telephone. "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". They went on to accuse the pair of earning $8.9 million between 2010 and 2012-and completely failing to pay federal taxes.

His brother got two years.

The brothers were first indicted in 2014.

Sorrentino starred on the MTV series from 2009 to 2012. The government also alleged that the brothers claimed improper deductions, commingled business and personal funds, and used business funds to pay for luxury cars and clothing. Marc Sorrentino was sentenced to one year of supervised release, and fined $7,500, with restitution to be determined at a later date.
