Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is speaking out after he was sentenced to eight months in prison on Friday for violating tax laws.

"We are very happy to put this behind us," the reality star captioned a series of photos featuring his fiancée, Lauren Pesce, and his "Jersey Shore" co-stars on Instagram hours after his sentencing.

He added: "Thank you So much for all the Love & Support."

In January, Sorrentino, 36, pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. In addition to his prison sentence, he must also complete 500 hours of community service and “was given $123,913 in restitution already paid, plus a fine of $10,000 that must be paid within 30 days,” People reported.

Sorrentino’s attorneys argued that the reality television personality should receive probation after pleading guilty.
