On his official Facebook and Instagram accounts, the reality star wrote, “For family, friends & fans, Mailing Address for letters only,” with an address to “Otisville FCI Federal Correctional Institution” in New York.
The Jersey Shore star pleaded guilty last year to tax evasion.
He also posted a few shout-outs to movies like Goodfellas, including a clip of Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill appropriately saying “Now take me to jail.”
Sitch captioned it, “The comeback is always greater than the Setback.”
His brother, Marc Sorrentino, 39, also pleaded guilty to preparing a false tax return and was sentenced to two years in prison.
When he was charged with tax fraud, federal prosecutors said Michael took “certain actions” to conceal some of his income to avoid paying the full amount of taxes he owed.
“Michael accepts the court’s judgment,” his attorney Henry Klingeman said in a statement late last year. “He is looking forward to marrying his college sweetheart…and moving forward together after he serves his sentence.”
Late last year, Mike Sorrentino married his wife Lauren.
