Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is back in the news, and not for anything good this time. He is currently facing charges against him for tax evasion. On Friday, he is to plead guilty in front of the judge.
Sorrentino, who is 35, is looking to face 15 years in prison if convicted.
As of now, no one knows exactly which charge Sorrentino in pleading guilty to.
Back in 2014, Mike and his brother Marc both received charges of conspiracy to commit fraud. Officials claim that the two did not pay any of their taxes properly on millions of dollars earned while doing different promotional gigs.
Mike Sorrentino Will Plead Guilty In Court On Friday
At the time, Marc Sorrentino was working as his brother’s manager. Though Marc was charged with three counts of filing false returns, Mike was charged with two counts of filing false tax returns. He was additionally charged for failing to file a 2011 tax return. That year he reportedly brought in close to $1.96 million.
According to court fillings brought in by prosecutors, both parties have agreed to plead guilty to their charges.
The hearing will occur in New Jersey this Friday around 11 a.m.
They both chose to enter not guilty pleas originally.
U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman says that at the time the two brothers filed false tax returns. The returns included incorrect information concerning appearances and promotions. Mike and his brother spent money on clothes and cars and claimed them as business expenses. There are also accusations of the two funneling company funds into different accounts. Both brothers learned fast that it is best to be honest when it comes to the IRS.
Last year, Mike Sorrentino received additional charges after officials accused him of tax evasion. Also, in an effort to evade currency transaction reports, his brother Marc was charged with providing false records.
