    I can't imagine why the fool ever thought he could get away with not paying the taxes on this prize to begin with. What a bone head.

    Wouldn't surprise me! He's probably one of the few that will enjoy his incarceration.

    The IRS is one group you don't want to mess around with. RH is not a stupid man. I think he knew what he was doing was illegal and was just making whateve excuse he could. Time to face the consequences Richard!

    Whatever happened with his adopted son? Wasn't their some domestic violence there?



    JMHO

    The judge said that he gave Hatch a harsh sentence because it was very obvious that he did nothing but lie on the stand. What an idiot. Why wouldn't you apologize, repent and set up a payment plan to pay back taxes, penalties, etc. After all, this was money that he won on a show and wouldn't have had otherwise.

    Couldn't have happened to anyone more deserving!

    I agree Hatch is an idiot (and I loved him on Survivor).

    But the gay-guy-loves-prison stuff isn't very funny. Last I heard, gay men tend to become rape victims in prison. Hatch may get some protection because he is a quasi-celebrity, but dropping the soap - in prison - isn't funny.

    How 'bout we have several hundred women-get-raped jokes and then go back to laughing at men getting raped?

    I didn't think so.

    Oh Nova...I think you are right...I just really didn't like him on the show (although he played it well...obviously!) and so kinda think having to follow a bunch of rules on someone elses time is going to be quite an adjustment for him...and there is no real prize at the end!

    Do they send you to a violent prison for tax evasion? I was wondering what type of jail/prison he would be going to. I hope he's not in with murderers and rapists, and seems hardly fair to me.
