Mark Salling, or as he’s better known, Puck from Glee, has just pleaded guilty to the possession of child pornography, involving a prepubescent minor — landing him up to seven years in jail.

According to the plea agreement obtained by Us Weekly, Mark must register as a sex offender and cannot communicate with anyone under the age of 18 unless in the presence of a parent or legal guardian. Once he’s released from jail, he must stay 100 feet away from schools, parks, public swimming pools, playgrounds and video arcade venues.

Mark must also pay approximately $50,000 to each victim who has requested compensation and will enter a sex offender treatment program.

Mark was originally arrested back in 2015, when the police were tipped off about his child porn collection. To their dismay, the Internet Crimes Against Children task force discovered over 50,000 videos and photos on his laptop and another 4,000 on a USB stick found in his California home. Details of who were featured in these images have, obviously, not been released.

Only one member of the Glee cast has spoken out about Mark’s charges, and that is his ex-girlfriend Naya Rivera who wrote in her 2016 memoir that she wasn’t “totally shocked” when she found out: “But still — WTF? Then I had no doubt that God really did have my back along the way."
