Mike Sorrentino will be a free man when he completes his eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion – but how free is he really going to be? RadarOnline.com can reveal exclusive details on the Jersey Shore star’s supervised release.
As Radar exclusively reported, Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion on October 5. He will also be on two years of supervised release. He was also ordered to complete 500 hours of community service, and pay fines and restitution.
In court papers obtained from United States District Court of New Jersey, Sorrentino must report in person to the probation office in the district he is released within 72 hours of his release from custody.
“You must not knowingly leave the federal judicial district where you are authorized to reside without first getting permission from the court or probation office,” the papers read.
Sorrentino must also live in a place “approved by the probation officer.”
“You must allow the probation officer to visit you at any time at your home or elsewhere, and you must permit the probation officer to take any items prohibited by the conditions of your supervision that he or she observes in plain view,” the papers continued.
Sorrentino must also work full time, which is at least 30 hours per week, at a “lawful type of employment.”
The Situation, who recently celebrated 34 months of sobriety, also must refrain from unlawful use of controlled substances.
“You must submit to one drug test within 15 days of commencement of supervised released and at least two tests thereafter as determined by the probation officer,” the filing read. “You must submit to urinalysis or other forms of testing to ensure compliance.”
He must also submit to “evaluation and treatment, on an outpatient or inpatient basis, as approved by the U.S. probation board.”
Sorrentino, 36, is also expected to undergo treatment in a mental health program approved by the probation office.
Upon request, Sorrentino must also provide the U.S. probation office with full disclosure of his financial records. He is also prohibited from “incurring new credit charges, opening additional lines of credit or incurring any new monetary loan, obligation, or debt, without the approval of the probation office.”
Other conditions include refraining from communicating with other convicted felons and not possessing or having access to a firearm.
Sorrentino has yet to check into prison. He is marrying fiancée Lauren Pesce in early November.
The Blast was the first to report on the court filing.
