Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has just been indicted on tax fraud charges and can face up to 3 years maximum in federal prison if he’s found guilty. Unfortunately for the Jersey Shore star, he also won’t be able to drink until his trial date.

Mike was released on a $250,000 bond and is currently awaiting his trial date.
“Michael and Marc Sorrentino filed false tax returns that incorrectly reported millions made from promotions and appearances,” U.S. Attorney Paul J.
