Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is marrying fiancée Lauren Pesce – but will their wedding take place behind bars? RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the Jersey Shore star is getting married AFTER his fraud sentencing.

Sorrentino, 36, and Pesce, 33, are tying the knot in early November, a source close to the couple told Radar.

The ceremony will come only weeks after his October 2, 2018 sentencing for fraud charges in Newark, New Jersey.

Fortunately for the couple, the nuptials won’t take place behind bars!

“Ordinarily in federal court, a defendant is given a period of time (30 to 60 days) to surrender voluntarily to begin a prison sentence after the sentence is imposed,” Sorrentino’s lawyer Henry Klingeman told Radar.

A source told Radar Sorrentino and Pesce “figured out the logistics ahead of time.”

The Federal Grand Jury indicted Mike and his brother Marc for failing to pay taxes on $8.9 million of income in September 2014.

They were also accused of filing false tax returns with the IRS in relation to Mike’s businesses.

The Situation was hit with more charges of tax evasion and structuring funds to evade currency-transaction reports in April 2017.

His brother was charged with falsifying records to obstruct a grand jury investigation.

Mike pled guilty to one count of tax evasion in January and faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

His brother pled guilty to one count of aiding in the preparation of a fraudulent tax return. He faces up to three years in prison.

Sorrentino proposed to Pesce in April.

“Wedding planning is going fantastic,” Sorrentino told Us Weekly in August. “I don’t really know too much about it. But I know happy wife is a happy life, so whatever she wants we’re going to try to get her.”
