Former Jersey Shore star to plead guilty to tax charges

Former Jersey Shore star to plead guilty to tax charges

The reality television star pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion in federal court in Newark before Judge Susan D. Wigenton as part of a plea deal in the tax case, in which he faced a 14-count indictment.

"What the defendants admitted to today, quite simply, is tantamount to stealing money from their fellow taxpayers", US Attorney Craig Carpenito said in a statement.

Sorrentino requested permission to travel to Florida to film the new "Jersey Shore" series. "All of us are required by law to pay our fair share of taxes".

"Michael Sorrentino admitted that in tax year 2011, he earned taxable income, including some that was paid in cash, and that he concealed a portion of his income to evade paying the full amount of taxes he owed", according to the document.

The Jersey Shore star and his brother/manager Marc were charged in 2014 and again previous year with multiple counts related to almost $9 million in income from the show.

The charge he pleaded guilty to carries a maximum of five years in prison but his attorney, Henry Klingeman, told reporters after the hearing he hopes his client avoids jail time.




Last week, the reality TV star had rejected a plea deal, but apparently he had a change of heart.

Sorrentino and his brother, Marc, were charged in 2014 and again past year with multiple counts related to almost $9 million in income from the show.

No date has been set for the "Jersey Shore" reunion yet. Marc was charged with falsifying records to obstruct a grand jury investigation, while Mike was indicted on charges that include falsifying records, tax evasion and structuring bank deposits to avoid reporting requirements.

Mike Sorrentino appeared on "Jersey Shore" from 2009 to 2012, and also on several other reality TV shows - including "Dancing With the Stars", "Celebrity Big Brother", "Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition", and with his family on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars - Family Edition", and "The Sorrentinos".

Their accountant, Gregg Mark, already pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the government in 2015. Marc had been facing up to 25 years in prison, but will now see a maximum of three years in prison. Her husband is serving a 41-month sentence.
