“Glee” star Mark Salling was indicted by a federal grand jury Friday on child pornography possession charges, federal prosecutors said.
Salling, 33, was charged with receiving child pornography and possessing child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California.
Salling played the role of Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the hit FOX television series “Glee.”.
Salling was arrested by Los Angeles police in December, but had not been charged federally.
The federal indictment alleges that Salling downloaded or possessed a still image and videos depicting young girls.
The LAPD referred the matter to federal authorities after allegedly finding “Thousands” of images of child pornography on a laptop, a hard drive and a flash drive taken from Salling’s home, prosecutors said.
Salling through his attorney agreed to surrender June 3 and is expected to be arraigned then, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
