Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is now behind bars, RadarOnline.com reports.
The “Jersey Shore” star checked into Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in New York, where he will serve an eight-month sentence for one count of tax evasion.
His sentence also includes 24 months of supervised release and 500 hours of community service once he is released.
Earlier today, his wife Lauren filmed an Instagram Live video of the reality star on his way to the correctional facility.
He told fans, “I want to put this behind me and move forward. The comeback is always greater than the setback.”
Sorrentino added, “'The Situation' will reveal himself in 2019. Currently under construction, but will be revealed. Under new management now.”
The 36-year-old encouraged fans to check out his YouTube channel to watch a video he had just filmed this morning, before telling Lauren, “There is nothing more to say. Just take me to jail.”
Mike’s “Jersey Shore” co-star showed her support on Instagram Stories by sharing a photo of the two with the message, “Sending love to my brother today!!! We love you!!!!”
