Former Michigan lineman Greg Skrepenak in halfway house
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.
