Federal prosecutors just ensured that the situation went from bad to worse for Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino today. Already facing big tax problems and 2014 fraud charges from the government, the former Jersey Shore star and his brother were slapped Friday with a new superseding indictment alleging more tax evasion, financial structuring and falsifying records. Added up, the claims could see The Situation doing his once much valued laundry for behind bars for 15 years or more.Related 'Dance Moms' Host Abby Lee Miller Says She's Exiting Show As Jail Time Looms
Mike and Marc Sorrentino will be arraigned on the new indictment April 17 in front of U.S. District Court Judge Susan D. Wigenton in Newark. NJ.
The former reality star and his sibling “conspired to defraud the United States by not paying all federal income tax owed on approximately $8.9 million that Michael earned between 2010 and 2012,” claims today’s indictment (read it here). “The object of the conspiracy was to impede, impair, obstruct, and defeat the lawful functions of the IRS, a constituent agency of the United States Department of the Treasury, in the ascertainment, computation, assessment, and collection of income taxes,” added the ledger book-like filing in federal court today from Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick.
