Judge: ‘Survivor’ star violated supervised release

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A judge says reality TV star Richard Hatch has violated the terms of his supervised release, but he didn’t immediately send the “Survivor” winner back to jail.

U.S. District Judge William Smith said Monday it was clear that Hatch had failed to refile his 2000 and 2001 tax returns, as required by a judge at the time of his 2006 sentencing. Hatch was convicted of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he won on the debut season of “Survivor.”

The Internal Revenue Service says he now owes about $1.7 million in taxes for those years, including interest and penalties.

Smith said he would sentence Hatch after receiving additional written arguments from lawyers on both sides.
