Los Angeles — Actor Mark Salling has surrendered to federal authorities and is awaiting arraignment on a child pornography case.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Matthew Cordova says Salling and his attorney are at a downtown Los Angeles courthouse awaiting the “Glee” actor’s court appearance Friday afternoon. Salling played Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the musical dramedy and was indicted last week on two charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.
Federal prosecutors are asking that the 33-year-old actor remain in custody until his trial.
In December, Los Angeles police and federal agents seized a laptop, hard drive and flash drive they say contained images and videos depicting child pornography.
He was charged with one count of using the Internet to obtain a pornographic still image and video of young girls and a second count of possessing two other porn videos that also featured underage girls.
