Rhode Island - Richard Hatch, the first winner of a million dollar prize on the television show "Survivor," will now get to test his survival skills in prison after a Rhode Island jury convicted him on tax evasion charges.
Hatch failed to report his one million dollar prize to the U.S. government in an attempt to skirt paying taxes on his winnings. The jury found Hatch guilty of three counts of tax evasion and filing a false return. Hatch now awaits sentencing in jail.
Hatch now faces 13 years in prison and $600,000 dollars in fines. A split jury decision allowed him to avoid being convicted on seven counts of fraud for misusing $36,000 in funds donated to a charity he created to help troubled teens.
