Richard Hatch Sent Back to Prison

Richard Hatch, winner of Survivor and current contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, is going to jail for not paying taxes for the money he won on Survivor.

The reality star has served more than three years for tax evasion already. He has been under supervised release and was supposed to re-file his taxes.

Hatch, who apparently can't outwit, outplay or outlast the Internal Revenue Service, failed to do so again and did not fork over taxes from 2000-01.

Richard needs to Hatch a plan to hire an accountant.

"It needs to be a severe punishment," U.S. District Court Judge William Smith told Hatch. "That's the only thing that will deter you in the future."

Hatch was also ordered to serve 26 months of supervised release. During that time, a quarter of his gross income will be paid directly to the IRS.

Hatch, who now owes an estimated $2 million, reports to prison Monday. There's a lesson in this, people. Withholding. It works pretty effectively.
