TMZ reports that Situation's brother Marc has also been sentenced, ultimately being given two years and a fine of $75,000. At federal court in Newark, New Jersey, Situation was supported by fellow Jersey Shore cast members DJ Pauly D, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Ronnie Magro-Ortiz, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese, and Angelina Pivarnick. His fiancée, Lauren Pesce, was by his side.
Both Situation and his brother pleaded guilty back in January to filing falsified returns on an estimated $8.9 million of income between 2010 and 2012.
The Jersey Shore reunion series Family Vacation returned to MTV in August with a two-hour special. The inaugural season bagged MTV a handful of viewership records, including the biggest unscripted debut since 2012 and the highest-rated series premiere (Live+3) in network history.
The second season is still in progress, with its finale—titled "What a Drag"—set to air later this month.
