Former Glee actor Mark Salling has pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Salling, 35, now faces between four and seven years in prison and was ordered to pay approximately $50,000(£38,000) for each victim.

The actor was arrested in 2015 after a tip he was in possession of images of children being sexually abused.

The investigators eventually found thousands of images on his laptop and the hard drive.

Salling has been accused of two counts of receiving and possessing images of child sex abuse in May 2016, and faced a possible 20 years behind bars.

But the documents obtained by several shots to show that it has entered into a plea deal with the California district attorney’s.

In the framework of the agreement, Salling will be subject to 20 years of probation, and will have strict restrictions on his contact with children under 18 years according to the celebrity website TMZ.

Salling played bad-boy football player Noah “Puck” Puckerman in the american series Glee from 2009 to 2015.
