Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is in a very serious… well, situation.
The Jersey Shore star rejected a plea deal, now setting the stage for a trial in his tax-related charges.
He and his brother were slapped with criminal charges back in April that accused them of falsifying records and not paying taxes.
And when the prosecutor offered them a deal, Mike and his brother said no thanks.
While it’s not clear exactly what was offered what we do know is this: Mike is accused of not paying all federal income tax on approximately $8.9 million earned between 2010 and 2012.
They even claim he structured cash deposits of amounts less than $10,000 into different accounts to avoid reporting to the IRS.
Mike faces up to 15 years in prison.
