A long time to survive federal prison for first Survivor

As detailed in articles here and here, "Richard Hatch, the first winner of the hit reality-television show 'Survivor,' was sentenced on Tuesday to four years and three months in federal prison for tax evasion."  Interestingly, U.S. District Court Judge Ernest Torres "said he had increased the sentence above a term suggested in a January trial because he determined Hatch had lied repeatedly about his earnings, taxes, use of charitable funds and extent of property."
