Mark Salling Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges, Faces 4 to 7 Years in Jail

Former "Glee" actor Mark Salling is facing considerable prison time after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor. He will also pay $50,000 in restitution to each victim who requests it. Investigators executed a search warrant on December 26, 2015, and found about 25,000 still images and 600 videos of child pornography and 29,000 images of child erotica.

However, TMZ report that the actor and prosecutors "agreed the appropriate sentence should be four to seven years in prison. with 20 years of supervised release".

Salling has also agreed to register as a sex offender permanently and a lifetime of supervision if and when he's released from federal custody.

Salling was arrested at his home in Sunland, California in December 2015 where police found images on his computer depicting children as young as 10 in sexual situations.

One of the original cast members of the hit Fox musical dramedy, Salling starred on Glee as Noah "Puck" Puckerman from 2009 to 2015.

In his plea agreement, the actor admitted to downloading more than 50,000 images of child pornography and erotica - sexualized images of children - on his laptop and another 4,000 photos and 160 videos of child pornography on a thumb drive.

Though he attempted to hide his illegal behavior, he showed the horrific images to an "adult woman in the context of their sexual relationship". Salling was cut from the film Gods and Secrets following his indictment.
