Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was recently paid a visit in prison from some of his Jersey Shore co-stars and wife, Lauren, RadarOnline.com has learned. Shocking new photos of the MTV star were posted to Sorrentino's Instagram account on Friday, May 3, and he's all smiles for the cameras! As RadarOnline.com readers know, Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion charges last October.
The reality star officially checked into the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in New York in January 2019. Following his sentence, Sorrentino will be placed on 24 months of supervised release and is ordered to conduct 500 hours of community service. Sorrentino's brother Marc was also sentenced to two years behind bars for similar crimes, Radar reported.
The Jersey Shore star's final words before his prison sentence were, "Take me to jail!" Now that he's lived life behind bars for a few months, Sorrentino appeared in good spirits as he was joined by his clsoe friends Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino.
