FORMER GLEE ACTOR MARK SALLING ADMITS TO POSSESSION CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IMAGESDate: 2017-10-05
Former Actor on Glee, Mark Salling, has pleaded guilty to possession of images of child sex abuse.
35-year old Salling now faces four to seven years in prison and has been ordered to pay a fine of approximately $50,000 to each victim.
The actor was first arrested in 2015 after a tip-off that he was in possession of images of children being sexually abused. Eventually, investigators found thousands of images on his laptop and hard drive.
Salling was charged with two counts of receiving and possessing images of child sexual abuse in May 2016 and faced a possibility of 20 years in prison.
However, documents obtained by several outlets show that he has entered into a plea deal with California's district attorney. According to celebrity website TMZ, as part of the agreement, Salling will be subject to 20 years of supervised release and will have strict restrictions placed on his contact with under-18s.
