"Glee" star Mark Salling enters his plea to horrifying child pornography charges

In a plea agreement filed with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on Tuesday, Salling, 35, has agreed to plead guilty to one federal count of possession of child pornography stemming from an indictment filed past year.

Salling had downloaded over 50,000 images and videos of child abuse to his computer, and another 4,000 on his flash drive, between April and December of 2015, while concealing his IP address with special software.

The 35 year old will reportedly be sentenced to four to seven years in prison, according to The Blast. He must also pay $50,000 in restitution to any victim who requests it.

Salling played bad-boy Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the Fox musical dramedy "Glee".




According to the agreement, the troubled star will register as a sex offender, undergo psychological treatment and a sex offender program, which could include checking into an impatient facility.

That woman ultimately reported him to police.

The actor was arrested in December 2015 after the Internet Crimes Against Children LAPD task force was tipped off that he had an extensive collection of child porn at his home in Sunland, California.

As a condition of his supervised release he will be registered as a sex offender - and also will not be allowed to live within view of school yards, parks, public swimming pools, playgrounds, video arcades, or any other places frequented by people under age 18.
