NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - The Latest on the federal tax fraud case against "Jersey Shore" reality star Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino and his brother (all times local):

11:30 a.m.

One of the stars of the "Jersey Shore" reality TV show has pleaded guilty to cheating on his taxes.

Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino appeared in federal court in Newark on Friday with his brother, Marc, who also pleaded guilty.

They were charged in 2014 and again last year with multiple counts related to nearly $9 million in income from the show, which ran from 2009 to 2012.

Michael Sorrentino on Friday pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion for deliberately concealing some of his income in 2011 by making cash deposits in amounts of less than $10,000 so they wouldn't trigger federal reporting requirements.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in late April.

One of the former stars of the "Jersey Shore" reality TV show is expected to plead guilty to cheating on his taxes.

Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino and his brother are scheduled to appear in federal court in Newark on Friday.

They were charged in 2014 and again last year with multiple counts related to nearly $9 million in income from the show.

"The Situation" appeared on all six seasons of the MTV reality show, which followed the lives of rowdy housemates in a New Jersey beach town.

The Sorrentinos initially pleaded not guilty, but wrote a letter to the judge this week saying they wanted to change their pleas to guilty.

A trial had been scheduled for next month.
