The reality TV star asked for mercy from the judge and said he was ‘deeply sorry.’

The evidence of the child pornography was found on his laptop during an investigation of a separate case, where he was placed on probation and ordered to pay $31,800 to victims of a financial scheme.

“The children in these videos and images were exploited, and each time the images were shared and viewed continued their suffering,” Attorney General Bill Schuette said at the time of Michael’s conviction in November.

He will be eligible for parole in one year and his maximum sentence is four years.

Michael starred on the 2001 Survivor II: The Australian Outback and also Survivor: Philippines in 2012.
