PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Reality TV star Richard Hatch violated the terms of his supervised release by failing to refile his tax returns, a judge ruled Monday, but he said he hadn't decided whether to put the "Survivor" winner back behind bars. He delayed sentencing until he could receive additional arguments.
Hatch, who was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he won on the debut season of the CBS reality series, spent more than three years in federal prison and was then placed on three years of supervised release. He was released in 2009 and has been living in Newport.
Federal authorities accuse him of violating the conditions of his release by failing to file amended tax returns for the years 2000 and 2001, as required by a judge at the time of his sentencing.
