'Jersey Shore' star Mike Sorrentino ready to resolve his tax situation

"Jersey Shore" reality TV star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is expected to plead guilty Friday, three weeks before his trial on tax evasion charges was set set to begin.

"What the defendants admitted to today, quite simply, is tantamount to stealing money from their fellow taxpayers", U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said in a statement.

According to The Blast, Mike Sorrentino and his brother Marc "have agreed to plead guilty" to at least some of the charges against them.

The U.S. attorney's office filed additional charges last April, including tax evasion, structuring bank deposits to avoid reporting requirements and falsifying records.

The former "Jersey Shore" star and his brother were accused of not paying all federal income tax owed on approximately $8.9 million earned between 2010-2012.

The Navy's investigation of the two collisions found that in addition to bad judgment, the crews were not adequately prepared. The four include the commanding officer, two lieutenants and one lieutenant junior grade, the Navy said.

The Sorrentino brothers created businesses, such as MPS Entertainment LLC and Situation Nation Inc., "to take advantage of Michael's celebrity status", federal prosecutors said. Additional charges against the brothers were announced past year.

In addition to prison time, the Sorrentino brothers also face a fine of up to $250,000 each.

Prosecutors asserted that the duo allegedly filed false documents that understated their business and personal incomes.

And then, only a year ago they were indicted again on charges of tax evasion and falsifying records.
