Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino sentenced to eight months in prison

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

Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison and two years of supervised release for tax evasion on Friday.

NJ.com reported that prosecutors said Sorrentino, 36, and his brother, Marc, created several businesses based on their in-person and television appearances, product endorsements, and product sales.

The cast of his hit reality TV show also showed up outside the courthouse, including Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" LaValle.

Sorrentino's attorney had pressed for no jail time, arguing that Sorrentino, 37, played a minor role in how his taxes were prepared and was suffering at the time from addiction to painkillers.

They come up against Valencia with United's record against Spanish sides staring in the face of Jose and his charges. The Red Devils are 10th in the Premier League after seven matches, with three wins, one draw and three defeats.

(Jersey Shore, for the record, began airing in 2009.) Sorrentino's brother Marc also pled guilty to a related charge and was sentenced to two years in prison.

From the "Jersey Shore" house to a jailhouse? "I think we just all want it to be over, but we are also hoping for a great outcome".

"Michael accepts the court's judgment", his attorney Henry Klingeman said in a statement. They were charged back in 2014.

He has paid restitution in the amount of $123,913 already. Further charges were levied last year, leading to a guilty plea for one count of tax evasion in January of this year. He returned for the reunion series Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which is now airing its second season Thursdays at 8/7c on MTV.
