Jersey Shore cast member Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino has been released from jail after serving an eight-month sentence for tax evasion.
The reality TV star completed his sentence at the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in New York on Thursday (September 12, 2019).
“We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort,” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren told People magazine in a statement. “We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations!”
His new wife added, “We truly believe that the comeback is ALWAYS greater than the setback and we can’t wait to show the world ours.”
Sorrentino was sentenced to serve time behind bars in October (2018) after pleading guilty to falsifying business and personal tax returns between 2010 and 2012.
In addition to eight months in prison, Sorrentino was sentenced to two years of supervised release and ordered to complete 500 hours of community service. His brother, Marc, was also handed a 24-month prison sentence for tax offenses.
