'Jersey Shore' star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino reports to prison for eight-month sentence

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will trade his six-pack-bearing swim trunks for prison garb starting this week.

The “Jersey Shore” star, 36, voluntarily surrendered and headed to the Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, N.Y. Tuesday, where he will serve eight months behind bars for tax evasion.

Sorrentino appeared in good spirits before he turned himself in, sharing a GIF on Twitter of Ray Liotta in “Goodfellas” saying, “Now take me to jail.”

“The comeback is always greater than the Setback,” he wrote.

He also shared a live video to his social media accounts of him riding in the car on the way to Otisville.

“The situation will reveal itself in 2019,” he says. “It’s currently under construction, but it will be revealed. It’s under new management right now.”

The reality star was sentenced to jail time in October after he and brother Marc pleaded guilty in January 2018 as part of a plea deal in the case, for which he was facing a 14-count indictment.

Marc received two years in prison, while Sorrentino got eight months, two years of supervised release, 500 hours of community service, a fine of $10,000 and $123,913 in restitution, which he already paid.

Despite knowing he would soon be hauled off to prison, Sorrentino made the most of his life post-sentencing, tying the knot with girlfriend Lauren Pesce in November and recently celebrating three years of sobriety.

“Mike is grateful to continue work, celebrate the holidays and his three years sober milestone,” a rep for the star said prior to his surrendering. “He looks forward to completing his sentencing and coming home to Lauren, family and friends.”

The Federal Correctional Institution is located about two and a half hours north of his home in New Jersey, and is also the location Michael Cohen is expected to serve time.
