The troubled star was convicted in 2006 for failing to pay taxes on the $1 million (£670,000) cash prize he won after appearing on the first season of America's Survivor.

Hatch walked free from a Massachusetts prison in October 2009, after completing a three-year federal sentence for the crime, but was ordered back to jail again this year for failing to file his 2001 and 2001 tax returns.

Hatch checked himself into a Brooklyn detention center in New York City on Friday (29Apr11). He is set to be released on 12 December (11), reports TMZ.com.

It was earlier reported he had turned himself into authorities in March (11).
