Former Glee actor Mark Salling has reached a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to possession of child pornography.

The plea agreement filed Tuesday in federal court in Los Angeles states the actor is admitting he possessed images of prepubescent children. The agreement states a search warrant found more than 50,000 images of child porn on Salling’s computer and a thumb drive. A report in Buzzfeed reads ‘some of the female victims were as young as 3 to 5 years old, federal prosecutors said.’
