Michael Terpening, a Barry County man already in prison for sexual abuse of young men, has been sentenced to an additional five to  30 years in prison by Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Leo Bowman for a scam Terpening and a fellow inmate ran from prison.

 

Terpening faced eight counts of larceny by conversion; five were dismissed; he pleaded no contest in March to three counts, according to Oakland County Court records.

 

Terpening’s partner in the scheme, inmate Steven Wilcox, had won a lawsuit against an attorney who later died, and the men tried to collect that debt from people who owed the late attorney money. They also tried to get money from people with no connection to the attorney, including a lottery winner and people critical of Terpening during his trial.

 

The former director of Earth Services Youth Home in Bellevue, Terpening is serving 10 to 15 years in prison after being convicted in Barry County in 2012 of sexually assaulting young men at the home.
