Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is reportedly behind on his court-ordered community service hours.

The Jersey Shore star, 38, has completed only 18 of 500 hours of community service as part of his sentencing in his tax evasion case, TMZ reports.

In documents obtained by the outlet, a probation officer said that she has reminded Sorrentino "at nearly every interaction to find a venue for community service, including service that could be performed from home," but claimed he has made little attempt to complete his hours since his 2019 release from prison.

The probation officer also said that Sorrentino was scheduled to volunteer in August, but did not attend due to coronavirus concerns, according to TMZ.

A judge is reportedly issuing a written warning against Sorrentino after receiving the complaint from the probation officer.

A representative for Sorrentino did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Sorrentino and his brother Marc were indicted in September 2014 for tax offenses and conspiring to defraud the United States after allegedly failing to pay taxes properly 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.

The reality star pled guilty to one count of tax evasion in January 2018, and Marc pled guilty to one count of aiding in the preparation of a false and fraudulent tax return. In October 2018, Sorrentino was sentenced to eight months in prison and two years of supervised release, and Marc was sentenced to two years.

In addition to his prison sentence, Sorrentino was also ordered to complete 500 hours of community service and was given $123,913 in restitution, which he had already paid, plus a fine of $10,000.

He was released from the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York, on Sept. 12, 2019.
