Glee actor who played Noah Puckerman on show pleads guilty to child porn charges

The actor is facing up to seven years behind bars 

Former Glee actor Mark Salling has pleaded guilty to possession of images of child sex abuse.

35-year-old Salling faces between four and seven years in prison and has been ordered to pay about $50,000 (£38,000) to each victim.

The actor was arrested in 2015 after someone tipped off authorities that he was in possession of images of children being sexually abused.

Investigators eventually 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 possible 20 years behind bars.

But documents obtained by several outlets show he has entered into a plea deal with California’s district attorney. As part of the agreement, Salling will be subject to 20 years supervised release and will have strict restrictions placed on his contact with under-18s, according to celebrity website TMZ.

Salling played football player Noah ‘Puck’ Puckerman on the US show Glee.
