Mark Salling’s Computer Contained Images of Girls Under Age 10 in Sexual Acts

More updates on Mark Salling’s disturbing child porn arrest.

The Glee actor, who was arrested yesterday (Dec. 29) and charged with possession of child pornography (minors “engaging in or simulating sexual conduct”), had his laptop, desktop computer, cell phone and tablets seized by the LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

He was served with a search warrant at his Sunland, California home and placed under arrest. According to Crime Watch Daily, who broke the story of his arrest, police used a battering ram to break down the actor’s door.

TMZ is reporting that according to law enforcement sources, they’ve already gone through his desktop computer and found it contained pictures of underage children in sexual scenes…some of whom were younger than 10 years of age. They still have to go through his laptop, cellphone and tablets.

“Our sources say some of the images involve girls under 10 engaging in sexual activities,” TMZ reports.

Cops were tipped off by an ex-girlfriend. Before the raid, police investigated the allegations for up to two weeks after they received the tip. TMZ is told the cops were “100%” sure that they would find what they were looking for based upon the ex-girlfriend’s interview, as well as other evidence.

Shortly after Salling’s arrest, his family posted the $20,000 bail (they put down $2,000, or 10%) and he was released.

According to the law, if there are more than 600 images (which we now know there are), the maximum punishment is 5 years in prison.

This isn’t Salling’s first public run in with the law. In 2013, he was involved in a sexual battery lawsuit when he was sued by an ex-girlfriend, who alleged he had unprotected sex with her despite her requests to use a condom. Salling was ultimately ordered to pay a $2.7 million settlement.

Salling is best-known for his role as Noah “Puck” Puckerman on Glee, which aired its season finale in March 2015.
