Over two years after Glee ended, core cast member Mark Salling has struck a deal with the feds that will see him serving possibly almost a decade behind bars and 20-years of supervised release on child pornography charges.

That's not all. Mark also has to give more than $50,000 for each victim who requests it. Upon release, he will be required to register as a sexual offender and can not have any communication with anyone under 18 without a parent or legal guardian present.

While initially facing a 20-year jail term, TMZ reported that prosecutors were seeking a sentence of between four and seven years.

Police found thousands of images and hundreds of videos depicting child pornography with children as young as three years old on Salling's computer and other devices.

He will also have to enter an offender treatment program as part of the plea deal.

This will entail pulling $10 billion out of materials costs and another $4 billion out of product engineering costs. Global demand for those vehicles is rising, and they are critical to Ford's bottom line.

The sentencing comes almost two years after police entered his home using a battering ram and discovered the images on his computer during a raid.

The celebrity was arrested for possession of child pornography in late December 2015.

According to Crime Watch Daily, police raided Salling's home in December 2015 and used a battering ram to force entry into his home.

According to new court documents, obtained by The Blast, Salling must also register as a sex offender, have no communication with anyone under the age of 18, and stay at least 100 feet away from schoolyards and parks, public swimming pools, playgrounds, and video arcades. Salling was cut from the film Gods and Secrets following his indictment.
