'Survivor's Michael Skupin Sentenced To Prison On Child Porn Charges

'Survivor' contestant Michael Skupin has been sentenced will spend one to four years in prison for child pornography charges.

The case against Skupin began when police found child porn on his laptop while looking into fraud charges against him. He was accused of running a Ponzi scheme.

Before the sentence was handed down by Judge Kelley Kostin during an appearance in court on Tuesday, Skupin, 54, asked for leniency from the court.

"I never, ever said who, what, when, where, why these pictures were on there or viewed, I just maintained that I didn't do it. I wasn't pointing the finger at anybody, there was hundreds of people that use these computers," Skupin said to the judge.

"I have 11 children that I'm raising and four of them are at-home minors and four of them are in college. I have about $1,000 a month obligation toward child support and there's so much fallout that would result in me going away."

"I would just ask that in order to maintain the quality of my children’s lives, there isn't anything that I wouldn't do that you guys ask me to do. I just ask for the mercy of the court."

When his sentence was read, the two-time 'Survivor' contestant bowed his head and said he was "deeply sorry."

As for his involvement in the financial scheme, Skupin has been ordered to pay $31,800 in restitution to investors.
