Mark Salling arrives at court to surrender following a federal indictment for child porn charges on Friday morning (June 3) in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old former Glee actor was booked by U.S. Marshals upon arriving in court. He was seen carrying a $100,000 check the day before, which will presumably be to pay for his bail.
“He will be asked to enter a plea, which I presume will be a not guilty to the two counts in the indictment, a trial date will be set, likely sometime in late July, early August, and bond will be discussed, we have agreed to a bond with his lawyer so I do expect him to be freed after the arraignment,” U.S. Attorney spokesman Thom Mrozek told Crime Watch Daily.
The spokesman says that authorities are still going through thousands of images found on Mark‘s computer.
“He had a very extensive and well organized collection of child pornography on his computer. If you read the indictment there are file names under which these images were stored on the computer, one of them is very descriptive,” Mrozek continued. “This type of behavior is disturbing, it is disturbing because these are images of real children who were molested by adults at some point and every time these images are distributed, or sold, or traded, and eventually viewed by someone that person is victimized again and that is why we take these types of crimes so seriously.”
