Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Gets Out of His Prison SituationMike “The Situation” Sorrentino can once again hit the gym, do his laundry and tan on his own time, after the “Jersey Shore” star was released from federal prison on Thursday morning. Sorrentino had been locked up since January after pleading guilty to one charge of tax evasion in 2018.

“We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort,” a spokesperson for Sorrentino told NBC News.

Sorrentino, alongside his brother, Marc Sorrentino, was accused of falsifying tax returns on about $9 million in income. Prosecutors said one trick the brothers used was to deposit slightly less than $10,000 at a time into their back accounts, allowing them to skirt reporting income to the IRS. Marc Sorrentino plead guilty to one count of aiding the preparation of a fraudulent tax return and sentenced to two years in prison.

The 37-year-old “Situation,” who shot to stardom in 2009 as a cast member on MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” served his sentence at Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in upstate New York. Sorrentino was also sentenced to 500 hours of community service and two years of supervised release, according to NBC. Federal prosecutors said Sorrentino has paid back $123,000 in restitution.

Soon after leaving prison on Thursday, Sorrentino tweeted “turn up we free !!! #freesitch.”
