    'Survivor' contestant, Michael Skupin, to stand trial for child porn

    TV’s Skupin to stand trial on porn, scheme charges

    Jennifer Chambers, The Detroit News 1:03 p.m. EDT June 3, 2016

    Clarkston — One of Oakland County’s former reality TV stars has been ordered to stand trial on felony charges of bilking investors in a pyramid scheme as well as possession of child pornography.

    Michael Skupin, 54, of White Lake Township, immediately left Clarkston District Court on Friday after a judge said there was enough evidence for him to stand trial on racketeering, larceny and child pornography charges after his computer was seized during a state investigation.

    The child pornography charge carries up to four years in prison. The larceny charge is a felony with a five-year prison penalty and the racketeering-conducting a criminal enterprise offense is punishable by up to 20 years in prison...

    Ex-‘Survivor’ to be sentenced on child porn possession

    Holly Fournier , The Detroit News 8:55 a.m. EST December 27, 2016

    Former “Survivor” TV show contestant Michael Skupin is expected to be sentenced Tuesday*after he was was found guilty last month*of possession of child pornography.

    Skupin, 54, of White Lake Township was convicted Nov. 18 on four of six counts of possession following a two-day trial. An Oakland County*jury of eight women and four men deliberated only two and a half hours before returning their verdict.

    He faces up to four years in prison for the felony charges, which resulted from a state investigation earlier this year into a Ponzi-style investment scheme, “Pay It Forward,” which he allegedly was operating in Oakland County...
