Bruce reported to jail Friday morning after he was convicted on charges of evading state taxes.
Prosecutors say he hid millions of dollars in a sham charity that he set up to avoid taxes.
The judge ordered Bruce to pay nearly $50,000 in restitution and court costs.
He also is being required to share personal financial information with the government, including his checking accounts and investments.
