Appeals court upholds prison sentence for Hatch
Federal appeals court upholds 9-month prison sentence for reality TV star Richard Hatch
By The Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) ' A federal appeals court has upheld a nine-month prison sentence for Richard Hatch, the winner of the first season of the CBS reality show "Survivor."

Hatch, of Newport, R.I., spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on his $1 million "Survivor" winnings. He was released in 2009 and ordered to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed.

The 50-year-old has been in prison since March for violating the terms of his supervised release by failing to settle his tax bill.

The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston last week rejected Hatch's claim that paying his back taxes would be "futile" or "impossible" given his Tax Court case. The decision was made public in U.S. District Court in Providence on Wednesday.
