Television personality Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino and his brother, Marc Sorrentino, were indicted on additional charges including tax evasion, structuring and falsifying records, the Justice Department’s Tax Division announced. In September 2014, the Sorrentino brothers were indicted for tax offenses and conspiring to defraud the United States. The superseding indictment returned includes new charges against both men. Michael is now also charged with tax evasion and structuring funds to evade currency transaction reports and Marc is now also charged with falsifying records to obstruct a grand jury investigation. According to the superseding indictment, Michael was a reality television personality who gained fame on the television show “The Jersey Shore,” which first appeared on the MTV network. Michael and his brother Marc created businesses, such as MPS Entertainment LLC and Situation Nation Inc., to exploit Michael’s celebrity status. The superseding indictment alleges that the brothers 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.
