Mark Salling, the former star of “Glee” has pleaded guilty to possessing child porn.

On Monday, Salling entered the guilty plea in federal court in Los Angeles. Sentencing is scheduled for March 7th.

The actor reached a plea deal with prosecutors in October in which he confessed to possessing photos of prepubescent children. The agreement states a search warrant discovered over 50,000 pictures of child pornography on Salling’s computer and a thumb drive.

Prosecutors and Salling will request that the judge sentence the actor to between four and seven years behind bars, People Magazine reported.

He will also be required to register as a sex offender, pay restitution, and live according to residency restrictions.

The actor played Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the Fox hit show “Glee.”
