Former Michigan lineman Greg Skrepenak in halfway house

When I think of Greg Skrepenak I remember him being the first of the massive offensive lineman. I remember the All-American career at the University of Michigan and a so so NFL career. I guess because of his Michigan education, Skrepenak carved out a respectable living outside of the football world. What little do we know about athletes off the field.

Skrepenak is headed back to a halfway house. Skrepenak  was sentenced in 2010 to two years in federal prison for taking a $5,000 bribe from a developer while he was a Luzerne County commissioner. 

Skrepenak's prison term officially ends June 12, followed by three years of probation. Skrepenak, formerly of Jenkins Township, was given a two-year sentence for his guilty plea to accepting a $5,000 kickback as a reward for supporting a real estate developer's entry into a program to delay payment of taxes on the project.

There are no specifics as to why he was sent back to the halfway house, but it's believed that it wasn't due to any behavioral problems that led to the decision.
