Former 'Survivor' Contestant Mike Skupin Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

Former Survivor star Mike Skupin was jailed on Friday (February 5) on several charges including the possession of child pornography.

The 54-year-old former reality star was charged with five counts of larceny, one count of racketeering and six counts of possession of child pornography, according to Detroit’s Fox 2.

Mike was originally investigated after victims of an alleged Ponzi scheme he ran contacted a local news reporter.

“Not only did this man rob people of their hard earned savings with his financial scams but he victimized innocent children every time he looked at a piece of child pornography,” Attorney General Bill Schuette said in a statement.

Mike competed on Survivor‘s second season but was evacuated from the competition on day 17 after he fell into a fire and severely burned his hands. He later competed in season 25 and tied for second place.

He is currently at the Oakland County jail where his bond is set for $350,000.

    I hate when i read about child porn accusations but never anything about the age of these kids. If its a 16 year old girl who looks like a legal woman, which most of them do like kylie jenner, its not fair for him to be sentance for something he didnt know the age of… However, if he actually searched up “child porn” on his computer with the purpose of pursuing child porn, thats another thing

    “Created to solve the problem of child sexual abuse, child pornography law…has grown dramatically in the past two decades, expanding and proliferating along with the underlying problem that it targets. Yet, curiously, the law’s expansion has not solved the problem, but only presided over its escalation.” Amy Adler, Associate Professor, New York University School of Law

    “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them” Albert Einstein

    Its sad that the media is prevented from seeing the images because they could REPORT to the public exactly what kind of data IMAGES (images that hold no form or life) investigators were talking about. A vast array of topics and ages fall under the rubric of CP law even the images, ” the children” take of themselves without ANY adult coercion are against the law and illegal. CP law based on pre internet research is fine until one of yours or someone you know has child, granddaughter, niece, nephew, neighbor caught up in this insanity. Amy Adler, Associate Professor, New York University School of Law states, “Everything gets to be Child Pornography according to the law, dressed children, shy children, children in settings where children are found, maybe children themselves get to be pornographic”. The best way to protect children is to keep the public informed with more than the Gothic Melodrama that win votes for prosecutors that some people seem to enjoy.

    In REALITY The majority of pedophiles get more sexual gratification from a Sears Catalog than pornography. It is RARE someone records their crime. The CP on line tends to be 30 to 40 years old when it was not illegal and the majority of those images are incest . You can do one of two things, argue or learn; the choice is up to you. Amy Adler, Associate Professor at the New York University School of Law states, “Everything gets to be Child Pornography according to the law, dressed children, shy children, children in settings where children are found, maybe children themselves get to be pornographic”. Pedophiles can simply turn on the television or go to the movies to see depictions of minors acting sexually or having a relationship with someone over the age of 18. CP law represents another symptom not a solution for child abuse or the cultural fascination with sexual children.

    Considering the FACT millions still believe kerosene melts steel I can see how easy it is for the government to get over on its people.
