After serving eight months behind bars for tax evasion, our tax attorneys have learned that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, has been released from a New York prison. He became a free man as of September 12th, 2019, and was reunited with his family that same day. According to People Magazine, the reality show star posted a picture Monday evening from his New Jersey home, displaying a grandly set dinner table, featuring items such as chicken cutlets, pasta dishes, salad, vegetables, cheese and cold cuts.
Reality Star Indicted on Tax Crimes also Plagued with Substance Abuse Issues
As we mentioned in a previous article in October, Sorrentino was indicted on a lengthy list of tax crimes, including tax evasion involving almost $9 million worth of income. He surrendered to New York’s Otisville Correctional Facility in January following his sentencing. Sorrentino told the sentencing judge that he had suffered for years from substance abuse issues, including a severe addiction to opiates.
Further Conditions of Release
Sorrentino is required to serve two years of supervised release now that his prison term is over. People Magazine also reports that Sorrentino must complete 500 hours of community service, but has already paid a $10,000 fine and $123,913 in restitution, which were also parts of his sentence.
Plans for the Future
In addition to his gala celebration dinner with his family, Sorrentino told Fox News that he is eagerly anticipating starting a family in the near future with his wife, Lauren. According to the Portland Press Herald Sorrentino and his wife stated that they are elated to be getting on with their lives after Sorrentino’s prison stint. The reality star told TMZ that his clothing store, The Sitch, is enjoying a record number of sales, particularly since his legal troubles began. He stated that in addition to starting a family, he will be focusing on sales and marketing for the store and devoting a significant amount of time to its management.
