'Jersey Shore' star Mike Sorrentino ready to resolve his tax situation

'Jersey Shore' star Mike Sorrentino ready to resolve his tax situation

Former Jersey Shore reality TV star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino wrote to a judge that he will plead guilty this week to federal tax charges, apparently ending a more than three-year legal odyssey.

"What the defendants admitted to today, quite simply, is tantamount to stealing money from their fellow taxpayers", U.S. Attorney Carpenito said in a statement.

According to The Blast, Mike Sorrentino and his brother Marc "have agreed to plead guilty" to at least some of the charges against them.

While his brother's deal relates to tax-year 2010, The Situation's plea covers taxable income he earned in 2011. He faces three years in prison.

Sorrentino and his brother, Marc, were charged in 2014 and again past year with multiple counts related to almost $9 million in income from the show.

Sorrentino, 35, will be sentenced on April 25.

Alarming: A&E chiefs from 68 hospitals warn patients are 'dying prematurely'
Ruth Davidson has called on the First Minister to stop cutting hospital beds while Scotland is in the midst of a "flu crisis". The First Minister insisted NHS Scotland is outperforming its counterparts in England and Wales in a number of areas.

It is unclear as to which charge Sorrentino is pleading guilty. He didn't answer questions from reporters, but his lawyer, Henry Klingeman, said his client was a new man who has been sober for two years and is in a steady relationship. The seven-count indictment alleged the Sorrentinos earned that amount between 2010 and 2012, mostly through two companies they controlled, MPS Entertainment and Situation Nation.

He has done guest work on numerous TV shows since the reality program went off the air in 2012, including Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Big Brother and Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition.

Prosecutors asserted that the duo allegedly filed false documents that understated their business and personal incomes.

"During the hearing, the judge approved Sitch to travel to Florida to shoot a "Jersey Shore" reunion," TMZ reports.

Sorrentino was a featured cast member on all six seasons of the MTV hit series, which followed the lives of a group of young Italian-Americans in New Jersey. Additional charges against the brothers were announced previous year. Marc was charged with falsifying records to obstruct a grand jury investigation, while Mike was indicted on charges that include falsifying records, tax evasion and structuring bank deposits to avoid reporting requirements.
