SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - A former NFL offensive lineman serving time in a northeastern Pennsylvania corruption case has been sent back to a halfway house.
Greg Skrepenak (skreh-PAN'-ik) 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.
Newspapers reported this week he was on home confinement, living in his parents' home and working for a law firm.
On Thursday, federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said Skrepenak had been moved back to a halfway house in Scranton. He declined to say why but said inmates can be moved from home confinement to a halfway house for a number of reasons, including disciplinary violations or disobeying program guidelines.
Skrepenak's attorney says he isn't aware of any violation.
