Unfortunately for him, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino did not manage to avoid going to prison. While he was not sentenced to the maximum of 18 months for his crime, he will still remain behind bars for about eight.
It is safe to say that the sentencing is at least inconvenient for multiple reasons, the most important being the fact that he and his fiancée Lauren Pesce have been planning their wedding.
But Mike will not let him going to jail stop them from becoming husband and wife as he reportedly plans to wed Lauren before starting to do his time.
The Situation’s college sweetheart has been by his side through thick and thin and the man is determined to have the wedding as soon as possible.
Attorney Henry Klingeman told HollywoodLife that ‘Mike accepts the court’s decision and he looks forward to marrying Lauren Pesce and moving forward together after serving the sentence. He anticipates coming back stronger as an individual and as a couple in the same healthy mindset that he’s had for the last 3 years. He and Lauren are both thankful for everyone’s support and prayers!’
Mike has to report in and start his sentence in the following 30 to 60 days so it seems like there might be just enough time for the ceremony and even for the honeymoon.
After all, the preparations for the big day have already started.
Still, he is upset that he will be missing his fiancee’s birthday on January 10, as well as other special days.
One source shared with the same outlet that ‘Mike hates he is going to miss Christmas, his wife-to-be’s birthday and most likely his July birthday too because he’ll be in jail. But it’s putting everything into great perspective. He will get through it.’
‘He has been sober for over thirty months, and he knows that if he was able to achieve that, his time in jail, missing family and friends and important dates would be something that will be much easier to get over. He knows his future is bright. He will take on his jail sentence and deal with it.’
