Los Angeles, May 28 (IANS) Actor Mark Salling, who is known for his role as Noah “Puck” Puckerman in the comedy television series “Glee”, has been reportedly indicted for possessing child pornography.
Salling was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of child porn after his laptop was seized last year, reports tmz.com.
One of the counts involved a memory drive that reportedly contained “images involving a prepubescent minor and a minor under 12”.
US Attorney Eileen Decker said: “Young victims are harmed every time an image is generated, every time it is distributed and every time it is viewed”.
If convicted of “receiving child porn”, the actor faces a minimum of five years in prison, up to a maximum sentence of 20 years.
But for the charge of possessing child porn, he could face 20 years for that alone.
