‘Jersey Shore’ Star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino to Plead Guilty in Tax Fraud Case

Reality TV personality and his brother were accused of failing to properly pay taxes on $8.9 million in income

We’re guessing Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s prison cell won’t come with a tanning bed.

“Jersey Shore” alum Sorrentino and his brother-manager Marc Sorrentino will plead guilty in a tax fraud case against them, according to paperwork from the U.S. Department of Justice.

In a letter to federal judge Susan D. Wigenton, the Department of Justice said that the two parties “have agreed to plead guilty.”

The Sorrentinos were initially indicted in 2014 and were accused of failing to properly pay taxes on $8.9 million in income that the reality star raked in from promotional activities.

Both Sorrentinos were charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States. In addition, Marc Sorrentino was charged with three counts of filing false tax returns for 2010 through 2012, while Mike Sorrentino faced two counts of the same charge, along with an additional count of failing to file a tax return for 2011.

Last year, the brothers were indicted on additional charges, including tax evasion, structuring and falsifying records.

According to the U.S. attorney’s office, the Sorrentinos submitted or caused to be submitted false documents understating the gross receipts received by the brothers and their two companies, MPS Entertainment, LLC and Situation Nation, Inc. The pair are also accused of submitting false tax returns that failed to report all of their income.
