Reality star Hatch accused of probation violation

Hatch was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million (£666,670) prize he won on the first season of America’s Survivor.

He walked free from a Massachusetts prison after completing a three year federal sentence for tax evasion in October, 2009 and began a three-year period of supervised release under the condition that he refile and pay his taxes on show winnings and other income.

According to, the federal probation office has now filed a complaint claiming Hatch failed to refile his 2000 and 2001 tax returns.

He is scheduled to appear in a federal court in Providence, Rhode Island on Monday (10Jan11) to face the allegations.

The website reports Hatch could face two years behind bars if he is found guilty.
