Jersey Shore's The Situation Sentenced to 8 Months in the Slammer

Pay your taxes, bro!

Malcolm Venable

With his Jersey Shore and Jersey Shore Family Vacation buddies at his side in a New Jersey courthouse Friday, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino learned his fate following a guilty plea on tax evasion charges; he's going to prison for eight months, with two years supervised probation, according to Us Weekly.

The 36-year-old and his brother Marc were indicted four years ago, resulting in him pleading guilty to one count of tax evasion in January 2018. He got off relatively easy: Sorrentino faced a five-year prison sentence but will serve less than a year. Marc was not as lucky: he was sentenced to 24 months.

Sorrentino is surely not having the best day, but if there's a silver lining, he's lucky he doesn't have to postpone his plans for the future for too long: he's been planning a wedding to fiancée Lauren Pesce since they got engaged in April.
