PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -

A former "Survivor" reality show contestant who was convicted of possessing child pornography has entered a plea in an alleged Ponzi scheme.

Michael Skupin pleaded no-contest Monday to larceny by conversion in Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac.

The state attorney general's office says Skupin must repay $30,000 in restitution as part of his plea in the larceny case.

The 54-year-old Skupin had to be medivacked during the 2001 "Survivor II: The Australian Outback" after falling into a campfire and burning his hands. He later returned to the show for "Survivor: Philippines."

A jury convicted Skupin Friday on four of six child porn possession counts.

The child porn was discovered on a laptop as authorities were investigating an investment scheme.

He faces sentencing Dec. 27 in both cases.
