“Mike accepts the courts decision and looks forward to marrying his college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce and moving forward together after serving his sentence. He anticipates to come back stronger as an individual and couple in the same healthy mind set that he has had for the last 3 years. He and Lauren are both so thankful for everyones support and prayers!”

The 37-year-old reality TVstar was accompanied to the Newark, New Jersey, courthouse by his fiancée, Lauren Pesce, and Jersey Shore” cast members, Pauly “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “J Woww” Farley, Deena CorteseRonnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, and Angelina Pivarnick, where he awaited a ruling on his case.

Aside from prison time, the Department of Justice required Sorrentino to complete 500 hours of community service, $123,913 in restitution that was already paid and a fine of $10,000 that must be paid within 30 days, according to People.

In January, Sorrentino and his brother, Marc Sorrentino, pleaded guilty to a 2014 tax evasion charge relating to $9 million in income and falsifying records. On Friday, Marc was sentenced to 24 months in prison for assisting in the preparation of a false return.

“Lying to and defrauding the federal government is a very serious crime, regardless of a defendant’s celebrity status,” Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Tax Division said in a press release.

“The Sorrentino brothers chose to use Michael’s fame to benefit themselves at the expense of the American taxpayer, and with the help of our federal partners, they were held accountable,” Zuckerman said.

Sorrentino appeared on all six seasons of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” from 2009 to 2012. He returned for the series’ reboot, “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation,” for Seasons one and two, which is currently airing.

The show has documented his proposal and wedding plans with Pesce, who has not yet commented on Sorrentino’s sentencing.
