Mark Salling of ‘Glee’ May Face Up To 20 Years In Prison for Child Porn

Mark Salling, one of the stars in the now-defunct TV show “Glee,” is having a rough year. And that may still even be the decade’s understatement. “Glee” was cancelled this year after a successful six-year run, he had to pay $2.7 million to ex-girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela after a sexual battery lawsuit. And now child porn, which authorities say could lock up the actor in jail for up to 20 years.

Mark Salling, after having arrested on Tuesday for the alleged possession of child porn images in his computer, has since posted a $20,000 bail. TMZ reported that “more than a thousand images of child sexual exploitation” were found on his computer. Authorities from the Los Angeles Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Unit, armed with a search warrant, brought down the door to Salling’s Sunland, California address with a battering ram.

Mark Salling was apparently in utter disbelief when police raided his home in search of the photos, which had been initiated upon a tip of an unidentified ex-girlfriend. It can be remembered that Mark has had numerous flings and girlfriends, often with co-stars and other celebrities, and some of these brief affairs and relationships were not exactly a bed of roses. Receiving the tip, authorities first conducted an investigation to ensure that it was not being done out of revenge.

According to law enforcement sources, cops took Mark’s computer and other electronic devices that could hold more of the same images, such as tablets and cellphones. Mark supposedly was living alone in the Sunland address, so it will be difficult for the actor the argue that the images were not his.

The media has been trying to reach out for Mark Salling and his representatives for comment, but even as of this writing, no word or official statement from Salling’s camp has been issued.
