The Situation seeks probation in tax case; feds seek 14 months

The Situation

"The Situation" and his brother Marc Sorrention (right) leave the MLK Jr.

Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has been sentenced to eight months in prison in his tax evasion case.

Both brothers pleaded guilty in January. They went on to accuse the pair of earning $8.9 million between 2010 and 2012-and completely failing to pay federal taxes. Yes, the celeb born Michael Sorrentino has been sentenced to eight months behind bars.

Sorrentino appeared in New Jersey federal court in Newark with Pesce and flashed a peace sign as he exited when a reporter asked if he had a message for his fans, People magazine reported.




Sorrentino's rep gave the following statement to Yahoo Entertainment: "Mike accepts the court's decision and looks forward to marrying his college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, and moving forward together after serving his sentence".

Sorrentino's brother, Marc Sorrentino, was also sentenced Friday to two years in prison as well as a $75,000 fine. He got off relatively easy: Sorrentino faced a five-year prison sentence but will serve less than a year.

Sorrentino admitted concealing his income in 2011 by making cash deposits that wouldn't trigger federal reporting requirements. Marc Sorrentino was sentenced to one year of supervised release, and fined $7,500, with restitution to be determined at a later date.

Numerous cast members, including Sorrentino, returned to MTV this year in a new show, "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation", set in Miami. 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.
