The Situation is no longer in a situation. Yup, he’s officially out of prison after serving an 8-month sentence. In classic fashion, the Jersey Shore star tweeted about his release, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino’s first tweet after leaving prison comes with a heavy dose of humor.
Sorrentino began serving his 8-month sentence on Jan. 15, 2019, at a prison in Otisville, New York. (The prison, by the way, is considered one of America’s "cushiest" and is the same place where Michael Cohen is currently serving his three-year sentence.) He plead guilty to one count of tax evasion in 2018 and was sentenced in October of that year. He was finally released on Sept. 12 — many visits from his wife, Lauren Pesce, and his Jersey Shore cast members later. Sorrentino said in a statement to E! News that he is "elated" to move on with his life out of prison.
"We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life," he told the outlet. "Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort. We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations! We truly believe that the comeback is ALWAYS greater than the setback and we can’t wait to show the world ours."
Sorrentino’s tweet about getting out prison is much more his style than that statement, though. He tweeted a GIF from a Chappelle Show sketch and wrote, "Turn up we free!!! #freesitch."
His fans are tweeting their support for the now-free Situation. A lot of fist pumping is involved.
More to come…
