Brother of ‘The Situation’ gets 2 years in federal tax case

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The brother of “Jersey Shore” reality TV star Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino has been sentenced to two years in prison for tax fraud.

A federal judge pronounced sentence on Marc Sorrentino on Friday. Michael Sorrentino was arrested along with his brother in 2014 and also is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.

Both brothers pleaded guilty in January.

The brothers were charged in 2014 with multiple tax offenses related to nearly $9 million in income.

Michael Sorrentino’s attorneys are seeking a sentence of probation, while prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 14 months.

He appeared on all six seasons of the show that ran from 2009 to 2012 and followed the lives of rowdy housemates in the New Jersey town of Seaside Heights.
