"The Comeback Is Always Greater Than The Setback ?? #FreeSitch," the incarcerated reality star captioned a photo of the visit on Instagram. Lauren even wore a "Free Sitch" T-shirt to the correctional facility!
The reality star and his brother, Marc Sorrentino, pleaded guilty to tax evasion last January. They were both initially indicted in September 2014 for tax offenses, with additional charges added in April 2017.
In January, Sorrentino shared a video featuring his emotional final moments before checking himself into prison.
"Today, I have the sense of just being happy to put this behind me," he explains in the clip, adding that he plans to "handle it like a man, with grace and class."
"We filmed a lot of season 3 already, because we documented Mike's wedding, and his court, and leading up to [him going to jail], so Mike's gonna be a huge part of the season," Guadagnino explained. "And in the time since he's been away, we haven't really even been filming that much. Because we can't really do the show without Mike."
"He is exactly the same," Guadagnino said of Sorrentino's supportiveness, despite being incarcerated. "He's so motivational, even from prison."
