Glee star Mark Salling - who played Puck for six series of the Emmy winning show - has signed a plea deal over allegations of possessing indecent images of children. [...] He also agrees to serve between four and seven years in prison, to be set by the court, and will then have 20 years of supervised release, with conditions to be set by the court. The 22-page document says he will pay at least $50,000 (£38,000) to each of his victims seeking restitution and a fine to be set by the court. [...]

"More than 50,000 images and videos of child pornography and child erotica were found on (the) defendant's laptop and another 4,000 images and 160 videos of child pornography were found on (the) defendant's thumb drive." [...] It adds that the images and videos were organised in a series of folders named "{girl's name} - 2y", "{girl's name} - 3y", "{girl's name} - 4y" and so on, so that "the folders contained... pornography depicting a child... who was two years old, three years old" etc. It continues that Salling agrees some of the images featured prepubescent children and "sadistic and masochistic conduct and the sexual abuse of infants and toddlers".
