Survivor star Michael Skupin found guilty in child porn trial

Survivor star Micahel Skupin has been found guilty in a child porn case Friday afternoon.

Skupin was found guilty by a jury on four of six counts after less than a day of deliberation in Oakland County court.

After confiscating his computers while investigating him, the Attorney General's office said they found pornography.

Thursday was day one of Michael Skupin's first trial exclusively dealing with child pornography. The attorney general's office says it was found on Skupin's laptop computers. He is expected to go to court next week on financial fraud charges.

The Attorney General's Office  had his home under surveillance on Dec. 17, 2013.

Agents said they watched as Skupin's wife and children left for work and school. Skupin never left and began accessing child porn around 10:00 a.m. He also wrote out e-mails and was on Facebook.

Another expert computer witness said that the  Facebook postings started at 12:34 p.m. and they continue to 12:52 p.m. A few minutes later they say Skupin was back accessing child pornography.

At about 2:30 agents entered the home and confiscated the laptop which was located under a pile of clothes in a plastic bin.

Skupin's wife at the time who is now his ex-wife, and one of his step-children testified no one in the house ever used Mike's computer's but him. Friday, the defense will present their case.

FOX 2's Rob Wolchek will have more on this developing story at 5 and 6 p.m.
