"Survivor" Hatch wants to leave country

Post by Nikki » Sat Jul 11, 2009 9:53 pm

"Survivor" winner Richard Hatch, who's serving home confinement for tax evasion, wants a leave to star in a 10th anniversary edition of the show in Samoa.

Hatch won $1 million on the reality show but was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on his winnings. He's serving the final 90 days of his sentence in home confinement in Newport, R.I.

On Friday, Hatch asked a federal court for permission to go to Samoa next month, when filming begins.

The government says in court papers that Hatch still hasn't paid $400,000 he owes. It argues a judge found Hatch is in need of supervision, and if he remains overseas it would be impossible to imprison him again if he fails to pay his taxes.

Hatch argues any money he earns from the show can pay his tax obligations

Let him go, sure. Let him come back?
