Marquette Offender Must Liquidate Retirement Account

KSAL StaffDecember 8, 2016

An appeals court says a Marquette man serving a 260-year sentence in a Kansas child pornography case must liquidate his union retirement account and apply that money he hid from the court to provide restitution to the victims.

Wednesday’s ruling by a Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel upholds a federal judge’s ruling against 54-year-old Philip Grigsby.

Grigsby, formerly of Marquette, was sentenced in 2013 after pleading guilty to eight counts of sexual exploitation of a child, as well as single counts of illegal gun possession and child porn possession.

A judge later ordered Grigsby to pay $140,000 restitution to a victim and her mother. Grigsby’s $53,000 retirement account he concealed during proceedings in the porn case was later discovered during his divorce, and a judge ordered it liquidated.
