Richard Hatch appeared in federal court Wednesday to face new accusations that he failed to refile his 2000 and 2001 tax returns, which would violate the terms of the supervised release he received following a tax evasion conviction.
Hatch was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he won on the first season of "Survivor" and spent more than three years in prison. Last year, he began a three-year period of supervised release and is supposed to refile and pay his taxes on the "Survivor" winnings and other income.
The federal probation office, which had been monitoring Hatch, has filed a complaint alleging that Hatch failed to refile his taxes. A hearing scheduled for Wednesday was postponed until Jan. 10 at the request of Hatch's public defender.
