"We're disappointed," Mike's lawyer said. "We hoped for probation. But the judge gave her reasons. It's a sad day. Mike Sorrentino righted his life. That progress has been interrupted. But this doesn't set him back. We asked the court to allow him to surrender in 30 to 60 days. He is expected to get less than eight months in prison."
