Michael Sorrentino was a reality television personality who gained fame on "The Jersey Shore", which first appeared on the MTV network. People reported that Marc was sentenced Friday to two years in prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion.

The Situation is heading for incarceration.

"Mike accepts the court's decision and looks forward to marrying his college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, and moving forward together after serving his sentence", the statement read.

He apologized to the court during brief remarks and said he has overcome substance abuse. The maximum sentence for his charge is 14 months, though historically defendants often receive probation.

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 starred in the MTV series from 2009 to 2012. At least there'll be gym and laundry in prison - not so sure about the tan, though.

Sorrentino admitted concealing his income in 2011 by making cash deposits that wouldn't trigger federal reporting requirements.

In addition to the prison terms, Michael Sorrentino will have to serve two years of supervised release.

The government's memo argued that a prison sentence would send the message that 'tax fraud will be met with real punishment'. He and his brother, Marc, created businesses, such as MPS Entertainment LLC and Situation Nation Inc., to take advantage of Michael's celebrity status.

According to Sorrentino's attorney, he has between 30 to 60 days to surrender, during which he plans to marry Pesce.

"As part of the conspiracy, the brothers also fraudulently claimed millions of dollars in personal expenses as business expenses, including payments for high-end vehicles and clothing, personal grooming expenses, and distributions - or direct payments - from the businesses to personal bank accounts".
