The details in the case against Glee star Mark Salling continues to get more disturbing as images of children under five were identified as performing sex acts on adults. New documents from U.S. District Court says that Salling possessed over one hundred thousand images of child pornography, and it seems that Salling, now 34, was leading a double life.
In July, Mark Salling got a postponement in his case to change lawyers as the case against him literally became a Federal case, according to the Inquisitr. Last month, there was a hearing for both the government and Salling to examine the evidence in the case, and for each side to take a position going forward. For now, the Federal prosecutor verified that the amount of images and evidence seized by the LAPD from the home of Mark Salling was vast and that the Glee star had more than a passing interest in child pornography.
Mark Salling’s next court date is November 7, and Salling and his lawyer, Michael J. Proctor, will respond to the government’s case, says RadarOnline.
“The government has produced discovery to the defense, including 100,000 pages of reports, photographs and forensic examination results,” the U.S. attorneys wrote, adding that they also possess “several digital devices containing images of child pornography.”
Mark Salling was indicted in May for knowingly possessing child pornography involving children under the age of twelve involved in sex acts. Salling is currently out on $100k bail and is wearing an ankle monitor. Salling must stay away from parks, schools, and other places where children congregate.

Police were reportedly tipped off that Glee Mark Salling possessed child pornography by a former girlfriend, says Hollywood Gossip. The girlfriend claimed that Salling had photos and videos of child pornography that were “deeply disturbing.” The case now involves over 100k pages of images that were found in Salling’s home, and on his electronic devices and a thumb drive.
Fans of Salling and Glee had hoped that it was all a big misunderstanding, but the charges against Salling have only increased over the months since Salling was first arrested.
Mark Salling’s Glee co-star and former girlfriend Naya Rivera reported in her autobiography, Sorry Not Sorry, that she was surprised by the charges leveled against Mark Salling involving child pornography, says People Magazine.
“I can’t say I was totally shocked, but still – WTF?”
Naya says that she feels as if she dodged a bullet in her relationship with Salling.
“My son’s nanny actually told me about it when the story broke. Then I had no doubt that God really did have my back along the way.”
Naya Rivera explains that she was seeing Salling for three years while they were working on Glee, but that his representative urged him to break up with her because they thought that it was better for his image if he was single.
“When Mark dumped me, I thought it was the worst thing ever, but can you imagine if that didn’t happen? And I was laying there in bed when the battering ram came through the door?”
Rivera claims that she now looks back, and asks herself what the heck she was thinking.
Other friends and colleagues of Mark Salling have said that Salling always seemed to be surrounded by young girls and that they also were not shocked by the charges against him.
