Posted: Updated:
EDISON -

Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has begun his eight-month sentence for federal tax evasion, reporting to Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in upstate New York.

Sorrentino's prison address indicates he'll be housed in the satellite camp, which is for minimum-security male offenders.

 The 36-year-old Jersey Shore star has recently been spending time with his wife Lauren, 34.

The two were married back in November.

Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of tax evasion and admitted concealing his income in 2011 by making cash deposits in amounts that wouldn't trigger federal reporting requirements.

A federal judge had sentenced the star shortly after his brother, Marc Sorrentino, received a two-year sentence on a similar charge.
