The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star, 37, has been serving an eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion at Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in New York. Mike’s release date is reportedly set for September 13, 2019, so it won’t be much longer until he’s a free man once again.

In April, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi opened up about his time behind bars and revealed that Mike was “having the time of his life,” despite the circumstances. While chatting with E! News, the MTV alum said, “It’s like his in a senior home, he’s playing Bingo, he’s helping people recover in jail.”

“We all talk to him through an email, so I talk to him like once a week,” she added. “He’s in the gym a lot, so he’s probably gonna come out ripped. You know, he’s not gonna be BDS anymore — Big Daddy Sitch — he’s gonna have his, probably, six-pack again. But … he’s doing good in there.”

Mike and Lauren previously took their relationship to the next level by getting married in November 2018 and they’ve been trying their best stay optimistic. In April, Lauren said they are “stronger than ever.” We’re sure he’ll be surrounded by friends and his Jersey Shore family the day he’s released!
