The actor's apartment was invaded by the Internet Crimes Against Children LAPD task force in December 2015, following a tip-off concerning possession of child porn pictures, which were found on his laptop and some gadgets.
Salling was reported to have been caught in possession of child porn, found on his laptop, hard drive and a USB flash drive, by the Internet Crimes Against Children LAPD task force.
This led to his arrest in December 2015 after a tip-off, according to TMZ.
Salling's involvement in child pornography has been met with huge consequences for his acting career, as he has now been removed as a cast in the upcoming film, "Gods and Secrets".
According to Us Magazine, Adi Shankar, who is one of the directors of the movie, said Salling will be removed from the movie and his scenes reshot.
Shankar said, “I will personally be paying for the reshoots, and I hope that Mark finds inner peace,”
“Furthermore, a percentage of profits from the project will go to a charity for abused children.”
Child Pornography is considered a very serious crime in the United States of America, as it poses threats to the well-being of children.
Eileen M. Decker, a US Attorney, who spoke to Us Magazine, said, “Those who download and possess child pornography create a market that causes more children to be harmed."
"Young victims are harmed every time an image is generated, every time it is distributed, and every time it is viewed.”
Previous reports concerning Salling's Child Pornography role said he was seen leaving Chase Bank on Thursday, June 2, 2016, with a $100,000 check made payable to the Clerk of the U.S. District Court.
