Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Will Be Released From Prison This Fall
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is scheduled to be released from jail on September 12, 2019.
The Jersey Shore star was found guilty of tax evasion and ended up with a jail sentence of eight months. He pleaded guilty for failing to pay taxes on over $9 million in income.
Sorrentino was also sentenced to two years of supervised release and up to 500 hours of community service.
His brother, Marc Sorrentino pleaded guilty as well, admitting to one count of aiding in the preparation of fraudulent tax return.
Sorrentino seems to be enjoying prison, as his fellow cast member, Pauly D, said that he is thriving in prison on Live! With Kelly and Ryan. The star said that Sorrentino can have contact with his friends and family daily via an app. Other cast members have also visited him in jail, along with his wife, Lauren Pesce who reportedly visits him weekly.
Vinny Guadagnino has also confirmed that Sorrentino is doing well.
“He’s doing better than me,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “He literally, like, eats well, he goes to the gym twice a day. He gets a haircut twice a week. He looks refreshed. And his mindset never changes. Like, we email him and I always think that one day he’s going to be like, ‘Not having a good day,'” Guadagnino continued.
“He’s always making me laugh, he’s like, ‘Yo, I saw you on TMZ,’ because they watch TV and stuff. He’s still our biggest supporter.”
