Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino launches YouTube series about prison

Posted: Updated:

“Jersey Shore” reality star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has launched a YouTube series about his time in prison for tax evasion.

In Sorrentino’s first episode of his YouTube series, “Prison Stories with El Situacion,” he tells a story about meeting former President Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who was also serving time at Federal Correctional Institution, Otisville in Otisville, New York. Cohen was serving time for campaign finance violations and tax and bank fraud.

Sorrentino recalls how on Cohen’s first day at the prison, he tried to convince Cohen to smuggle him extra chicken from the prison cafeteria – with disastrous results.
