The Jersey Shore’s, Mike Sorrentino was sentenced today to 8 months in federal prison and two years of supervised release fter pleading guilty in January to failure to pay taxes on $8.9 million of income earned between 2010 and 2012. Mike has already paid $123,913 in restitution. His brother Marc also plead guilty to tax evasion.
Marc Sorrentino was just sentenced to has just been sentenced to 2 years and a $75k fine. Mike has always blamed his brother for “the situation” and his sentence was expected to be longer.
The entire cast of Jersey Shore showed up dressed entirely in black, silent and solemn,to support their fellow cast member.The cast was followed by Jersey Show cameras filming their arrival. Snooki has been all over the media the past week saying the cast has spent a lot of time with Mike in his final week keeping him distracted.On the most recent of Jersey Shore the cast has repeatedly expressed concerns for Mike saying they honestly don’t think he can handle prison. Mike arrived to court separately with his fiancee, Lauren Pesce.
The sentencing hearing was supposed to start at 11:30 this morning but it seems to have been delayed a bit by all the people trying to get through security to observe the proceedings. It’s 12:30 and I’ve got nothing coming out of the courtroom yet. It looks like they may have a no texting rule happening or his case is not up yet.
While I am refreshing for more information, I will catch you up on other Jersey Shore news you may have missed. J Wow is divorcing her husband. If I had to guess, he is sick and tires of her filming Jersey Shore. They are filming now and have filmed three seasons of Jersey Shore Vacation, nearly back to back to back leaving him at home with their two kids, four year old Meilani and their two year old son Greyson. Greyson has significant speech delays and is in therapy three times a week. This is a lot to leave on a husband while you party in Miami and Vegas. I realize that the huge paycheck will ultimately help with all of the unexpected expenses, I am just saying that I can understand her husband being frustrated and overwhelmed.
Ronnie, who I believe lives in Las Vegas (Where Paulie D lives) has hired an attorney to fight for custody of his young daughter. There have been numerous arrests between the child’s parents as both have apparently assaulted the other. The mother seems particularly unstable. If she seems worse than Ronnie as a parent that is kind of scary. Oddly, TMZ has a photo of these two out with the baby seeming totally back together.
What on earth has taken so long? Did they decide to break for lunch or something? Here come the sentences! Apparently, if you left court to report on Marc, you couldn’t get back in for Mike’s sentencing. This is taking forever.
