The former Glee star – who now has just eight hours until his arraignment on Friday – was seen exiting the facility with a $100,000 check made payable to the Clerk of the U.S. District Court.
A federal grand jury indicted Salling, 33, on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography on his laptop computer and a flash memory drive. According to Department of Justice’s release, receiving child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison and a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years. Possessing child pornography also carries a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
On Tuesday it was announced that Salling, who is best known for playing Glee‘s Noah “Puck” Puckerman, had been fired from his upcoming miniseries Gods and Secrets, after a federal grand jury indicted him on child pornography charges.
“He has been cut from the miniseries,” executive producer Adi Shankar wrote in a statement. “I will personally be paying for the reshoots, and I hope that Mark finds inner peace.”
