Seriously, dude? Seriously??
The first winner of Survivor, Richard Hatch, was back in a Rhode Island court on Wednesday for new accusations that he failed to refile his 2000 and 2001 tax returns.
Hatch was convicted of failing to pay taxes on his $1 million winnings back in 2006 and served more than three years in prison. After his release last year, he began a three-year period of supervised release and was ordered to refile and pay his 2000 and 2001 taxes within a year.
Unfortunately, the reality
deadbeat star allegedly failed to even do that and will have to appear a January 10th hearing. He faces another possible jail sentence for two years if a judge determines that he violated his probation.
Hatch has not responded to the new allegations, however he did say last month that the IRS gave him two refunds checks, $1000 each, and said that was "unequivocal proof" he owed nothing. He also added, "I'm looking forward to the hearing. That's where you'll hear the facts. This is the only way the facts actually get before the court."
To make things even more crazy, when Hatch requested a public defender, he crossed out the word "truth" and replaced it with "honest" on the standard request form, which delayed things and a new form was ordered to be drawn up.
Ugh. Is he for real? Does he want to spend MORE time in jail? Just pay your taxes already!!
