Late last year, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison for tax charges. The star rose to fame on original reality car crash, Jersey Shore, and continues to star in the spin-off, Family Vacation. For much of his original reality turn, Sorrentino was struggling with prescription drug addiction, and during this time, he was also engaged in some dodgy fiscal behavior. Now sober, this has caught up with him and his sentencing was captured on film in a particularly dramatic episode of Family Vacation.
Now, after serving eight months in Otisville, New York, Sorrentino has been released. Read on for the emotional statement that the reality star made.
