'Glee' Star Pleads Guilty To Child Porn

Former "Glee" star Mark Salling pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of child pornography and could face four to six years in prison.

That's not all. Mark also has to give more than $50,000 for each victim who requests it.

Under the plea deal, Salling will register as a sex offender and participate in counseling or psychiatric treatment.

Stating that he is "pleading guilty because I am guilty of the charges", Salling this week escaped spending up to 20-years in jail and a lifetime of supervised release from the charges that stemmed from his December 29, 2015 arrest.

Salling admitted to using the internet over several months in 2015 to download thousands of images of child pornography. The documents say Salling used software to mask his IP address, but showed his child pornography to an adult woman on at least two occasions.

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

The actor, 35, agreed to serve a 4-to-7-year sentence after Los Angeles authorities discovered images displaying illegal content involving minors on his personal computer, according to court documents obtained by the Daily News.

In December 2015 Mark Salling's home was raided and searched and his laptop was seized.

He was subsequently fired from his starring role in the miniseries "Adi Shankar's Gods and Secrets" a few days later.

The news comes nearly a year to the day after a rape rap against Salling was tossed, because a woman accusing him waited too long to report the alleged sex attack.
