As of now, the former reality star is out on bond and will remain so until he goes on trial for separate charges of racketeering. Following the conclusion of the case, the 54-year-old will face sentencing for both convictions.

Following Michael's conviction, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette stated:

"The children in these videos and images were exploited, and each time the images were shared and viewed continued their suffering. My hope is that today's conviction will bring some closure to the families and the children that are victims in this case."

Well said.

We'll keep you updated this case progresses.

The ex-contestant said in a statement:

The 54-year-old explained that he's turning to religion following his arrest, adding:

This Survivor Star Was Charged With Child Porn Possession

This just makes our skin crawl.

On Friday, former Survivor contestant Michael Skupin was charged with MULTIPLE counts of child pornography possession.

The 54-year-old — who just went by Skupin on the show — is being charged with six counts after his arraignment. One of the worst parts about this whole thing is that he wasn't even being investigated for kiddie porn.

According to the Attorney General, officials were looking into him for supposedly running a Ponzi scheme, after his alleged victims reached out to a news reporter.

So, in addition to the possession charges, the father-of-three also got slapped with five counts of larceny and one of racketeering.
