NEW YORK -

A federal prison consultant says “Jersey Shore” star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will probably be released "any day now."

But the native of Long Branch will probably have to stay at a halfway house until his original release date of Sept. 13, and then have 24 months of probation.

Sorrentino is serving an eight-month sentence for tax fraud at Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York.

Sorrentino pleaded 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.
