WILKES-BARRE - A former NFL lineman has agreed to plead guilty to accepting a bribe a day after he resigned as a Luzerne County commissioner.
Greg Skrepenak is accused of taking $5,000 from a developer for supporting a tax incentive program. He faces at least 33 months in prison under the terms of the plea agreement filed yesterday. The agreement indicates both sides agree the offense involved between $30,000 to $70,000. That figure will be considered at sentencing.
Skrepenak resigned Thursday as a Luzerne County commissioner. Defense attorney Peter Moses said Skrepenak accepts responsibility for his actions, but declined further comment.
