The Providence, R.I., grand jury handed up a 10-count indictment alleging Hatch failed to report more than $1 million in income from "Survivor" and about $391,000 in income from six other sources, CBS News reported.

The indictment charges Hatch did not report the $1 million prize he won in the first season of "Survivor," the Pontiac Aztec he also won on the show or income from several paid appearances he made as winner of the CBS reality show.

The indictment charges Hatch created a charity, Horizon Bound, then allegedly used $36,500 in donations for his personal expenses.

The indictment charges Hatch with two counts of tax evasion, one count of filing a false S-Corporation income tax return, two counts of wire fraud, four counts of mail fraud and one count of bank fraud.
