Mike The Situation Sorrentino falls behind on court ordered community service

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino was ordered by a judge to complete 500 hours of community service as part of his tax evasion sentence in 2018.

And, according to court documents obtained by TMZ on Tuesday, the Jersey Shore star, 38, has only completed a total of 18 hours, since being released from federal prison in September of 2019.

Sorrentino is now being issued a ‘written warning’ as a result of his probation officer reporting his lack of due diligence to the judge.

As per the documents, the probation officer claimed that she had ‘continually talked to Mike about where to volunteer in his community.’

She encouraged Sorrentino to lend his time to Toys for Tots or, if he wanted to stay closer to home, he could also help out his church and/or several food banks.

Mike’s probation officer even alleged that the reality star was scheduled to put in some volunteer time in the month of August, but that he ‘failed to attend due to COVID-19 concerns.’ 

Noting the pandemic as a possible concern for Sorrentino, the probation officer went out of her way to remind Mike ‘at nearly every interaction to find a venue for community service, including service that could be performed from home.’

But, despite her best efforts to get through to Sorrentino, she claimed that he made ‘no effort’ to choose a community service avenue and stick with it.
