Pontiac - A former contestant of the CBS TV show Survivor has been sentenced to at least a year in prison for possessing child pornography.

Michael Skupin appeared in Oakland County court in suburban Detroit in December. He asked for mercy from the judge and said he's "deeply sorry".

In a separate case, he was placed on probation and ordered to pay $31 800 to victims of a financial scheme. During that investigation, authorities found child porn on Skupin's laptop. He was convicted in November.

Skupin will be eligible for parole after a year. His maximum prison sentence is four years.

In 2001, Skupin had to be evacuated from the Survivor II: The Australian Outback after falling into a campfire, but he returned for Survivor: Philippines in 2012.
