Sorrentino, 36, entered the expected guilty plea in a New Jersey federal court at a hearing Friday morning, as first reported by TMZ. He was accompanied by his girlfriend, Lauren Pesce and pleaded guilty to Count 13 of the superseding indictment, which charges him with tax evasion. His brother Michael, 38, pleaded guilty to Count 5, which charges him with aiding in the preparation of a false and fraudulent tax return.

According to TMZ, he is facing up to five years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine — but the judge did approve him to travel to Miami, where he will join his Jersey Shore castmates.

The two brothers were initially indicted in September 2014 for tax offenses and conspiring to defraud the United States after allegedly failing to properly pay taxes on $8.9 million in income from 2010 to 2012.

In April 2017, both men were indicted on additional charges including tax evasion, structuring and falsifying records. Initially, they pled not guilty to all charges.

Speaking to PEOPLE last year, Sorrentino said that he was “trying to take these experiences that are coming my way and make them a positive.”

At the time, Sorrentino asserted that the allegations “do not portray me accurately,” but added, “That’s all I can say for now.”

Sorrentino’s Jersey Shore castmate Jenni “JWoww” Farley, agreed with his assertion that he’d changed, revealing on PEOPLE Now that she couldn’t wait for viewers to see what a “different human being” he had become.

“Mike was ‘the Situation’ on the show, and he was arrogant and he was cocky and he was very full of himself,” said Farley, 31, “and it was very hard to accept that person as a friend.”

“I wanted this show to come back together for him because he’s sober, he’s clean, he’s a different human being now. And he’s so positive, he’s so supportive of all of us — I’m like if there’s anyone who deserves this show to come back, it’s [Mike] because I want everyone to see this side of Mike,” the mother of two continued.

Despite the fact that Sorrentino — who battled an addiction to painkillers but has been sober now for over two years — will be re-entering the party scene for the show, Farley went on to promise that the cast will be watching over him.

“I asked him the other day, I said — because we’re in a group chat so we’re always joking, we’re always making fun of each other, literally the whole day is just making fun,” she said, continuing, “but I was like, ‘Mike, are you okay?’… He’s like ‘I’m so prepared’ — he’s got his meetings, he knows what to do.”
