Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- �Survivor� winner Richard Hatch has been arraigned in federal court in Providence on charges that he never paid taxes on the (m) million dollars he won on the hit T-V show.

The Newport resident did not enter a plea in court today. He�ll be back in court at a later date to enter a plea. Prosecutors say they expect him to eventually plead guilty.

U-S Magistrate Judge Lincoln Almond set a 50-thousand dollar bond. Hatch posted bond immediately following the hearing.

Hatch would not comment outside the courtroom, but told the judge he understood the charges.

Federal prosecutors charge that Hatch never reported the money he was paid by the C-B-S reality show. They say he also failed to report the 321-thousand dollars he was paid by a Boston radio station.

Hatch faces a maximum five years in federal prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine for each charge.
