Jersey Shore’s Mike ‘Situation’ Sorrentino Facing New Tax Evasion Charges That Can Land Him In Prison

There is more bad news for Mike Sorrentino AKA ‘The Situation’. The Federal Government announced today that they have filed more charges against Sorrentino and his brother Marc Sorrentino. These charges have been added to existing charges against the brothers. Mike who appeared on the hit MTV show ‘Jersey Shore’ from 2009 to 2012, is facing a ten year prison sentence and his brother 20 years. The duo have been charged with a mountain of counts, including evading taxes, filing false reports, and funneling money into off shore accounts. The IRS is claiming the brothers did any and everything to avoid paying taxes on Sorrentino’s 9 million dollar plus income from ‘Jersey Shore’ and other endeavors.

The brothers will be arraigned on April 17th in Federal Court in New Jersey. Their lawyers have filed several motions to delay the proceedings. However an official with the IRS said today, the pair are out of extensions, and will face trial this summer. Sorrentino who will turn 35 on July 4th, has been struggling with these tax charges for the last 5 years. He has tried to gain some footing with his new found fame, but after ‘Jersey Shore’ was canceled due to low ratings in 2012, the road has been difficult for him.

He has appeared on 6 different reality shows since the cancellation of JS, with the biggest blow coming when his own show ‘The Sorrentinos on the TV Guide network was canceled after 1 season in 2014 because of low ratings. Experts on tax evasion charges weighed in today saying the brothers will most definitely face jail time, it’s just a matter of how much.
